Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival

I'd like to welcome everyone to Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival.  We are a group of Catholic bloggers who gather weekly to share our best posts with each other.  To particpate, go to your blog and create an entry titled Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival.  In it, highlight one or more of your posts from the past week that you believe would be of interest to Catholic bloggers---whether they are posts reflecting on spiritual matters or posts about antics of Catholic kids, or anything in between.  Come back here and enter the URL of that post below.  Finally, go visit other participants, and leave comments!  If you want a weekly reminder to post, join our yahoogroup.

This is the last week of Christmas in September, in which I'm promoting Christmas books.  It includes a contest, and one of the prizes is Kathleen Basi's Joy to the World.  I'm drawing winners on Wednesday so enter the contest by either linking to a review you did of a Christmas book or by leaving a comment on the Christmas in September page about one of the books linked.

Lots of book reviews this week (click on titles for review)
Kisses from Katie:  18 year old American girl goes to Uganda and ends up adopting a houseful of orphans.
Heiress:  Christian historical romance set in the early 1900's
An Angel for Christmas:  Christmas story
A Lawman's Christmas:  Christmas Western romance
The Wounded Heart:  Amish romance
1225 Christmas Tree Lane:  End of Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove series

My top ten list this week was a list of 10 bloggers who follow me.  Some Catholic bloggers are in that number, so check out their blogs.

Book bloggers were observing Banned Books Week and I decided to offer an opinion a little bit contrary to what many of them were saying.

What about your blogging week?


  1. Hi, RAnn!

    This week's theme was the porch. We read "They Sit Together on the Porch", a poem about growing together, looked at the painting "Siamese Cat on the Porch" and listened to "Late Night on the Back Porch" which was accompanied by vintage pictures.

    I also posted a bit about Sts. Cosmos and Damien.

  2. RAnn, thanks for hosting. I had an enjoyable blogging week researching a couple of posts connected with Japan.

  3. One post on using rubber fetuses in catechism class.

    Second post on using one of Marc Chagall's wedding paintings in...catechism class.

    Thanks for hosting, RAnn!

  5. Hello, RAnn!

    Thanks again for hosting this! On Outside the Asylum, "Contraceptives are for suckers" looks at how advertising and stressing effectiveness rates misleads people into taking unnecessary risks by comparing it to casino bets. And "From the 'Doctor Hoo, boy' file" on The Impractical Catholic looks at a couple of Culture of Death promotional fails.

  6. Thank so much for hosting, RAnn!
    This week, I have sad news about
    Baby Joseph, a post from last year,
    and, as always, my weekly book list.

  7. Thank you RAnn for your work with the Sunday Snippets.

    I've been focusing in on the culture debate with the administration's latest moves through the DHHS and EEOC.

  8. Thanks for tirelessly hosting RAnn,
    I talk about why Catholic supposedly have a lot of guilt.

  9. Thanks for hosting.

    I wrote a post about yesterday listening to Marcus Grodi of EWTN's "The Journey Home" program talk about Catholicism at a local Catholic parish.
