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.

Thanks for joining us.  Last week I was late so this week, I'm early--it all evens out in the end, right.  I'd like to thank those of you who purchased Saving Jenny after clicking on my link--at least I assume the purchaser(s) was/were Sunday Snippets readers.  In case you don't realize it, I (and most other book bloggers) use affiliate links, meaning that generally we provide links to bookstores where you can purchase the books we review, and those bookstores give us a small commission.  I'm going to have to sell a lot more books before I can quit my day job but if you decide to buy a book on the basis of a blog review, a nice way to say "thanks" to the blogger is to use his/her link to purchase it.

My posts this week haven't been Catholic (though I did get a new book from the Catholic Company and have a couple of Catholic NetGalleys so there should be some Catholic reviews coming soon).  The Snowman's Revenge  is a cute kids book.  Just Tacos is a cookbook.  What's for Dinner tries to help you answer that question. The Christmas Wedding is a sweet but unrealistic Christmas read.  The Wonder of Your Love is Amish fiction.  My Top Ten Tuesdays post highlights some Catholic bloggers.


  1. RAnn, thanks for hosting this every week! I posted about God coming first and God is Good!

  2. Thanks for the heads-up about purchasing through the book bloggers. Will definitely be keeping that in mind!

  3. Heh, heh, heh. Your cook book reviews make me way too hungry! What shall I do. I want tacos and that potless fondue recipe right now.

    Thanks for hosting this meme. It's a highlight of my week to visit other bloggers who link up here.

    Thanks, RAnn, for hosting! I think you meant Stealing Jenny (if you were talking about my book...) God bless!

  5. Thanks for the early link-up, RAnn!

    Most notable this week is a 3 part series on the importance of honoring the Lord's Day


    A Giveaway! A lovely set of 4 handmade crocheted snowflake ornaments.

  6. 4 posts, none of penitential length, mostly on catechism class.

  7. Its been a few weeks since I've posted, it's good to be back! Enjoy my post about what Servant of God Fulton Sheen referred to as "the greatest Love story of all time." Blessings to you all.

  8. Hi, RAnn! This week, I posted art, poetry and music about cats. I also posted about a document on the economy rumored to be in the works @ the Vatican.

  9. Thank you so much for hosting, RAnn.
    This week, I'm sharing a message from Fr. Frank Pavone.
    I also have a disturbing article about a priest who favors abortion,
    a post about Blessed John Paul II and the Luminous Mysteries,
    a post about a serial from my childhood,
    several posts about my Rosary Art Collection,
    and a few posts about books, including, of course, my weekly book list.

  10. Thank you so much for your kind invitation, R'Ann. I have been so busy this past week that my only recent post is a brand new one as of just a few minutes ago. It is a quote from the joyful Saint Francis of Assisi. May Almighty God bless you and Our Lady protect you.

  11. An Evangelical sermon on works and faith that sounds rather Catholic, a day of silence for abortion, and a t-shirt reminder of our tendency to stray from God...that's what you'll find in this week's posts.

    Thanks for hosting, RAnn!

  12. I made it in this week RAnn!! It was interesting because I blogged about the new faith based movie called The Mighty Macs and then I heard there was much controversy. I'd be curious to hear your thoughts!

  13. It’s wonderful that you host this RAnn. It’s also wonderful that I’m actually posting again. I have a whole slew of posts ranging from Narnia to some Catholic retreats to Dr. Who.
