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.
I hope everyone had a blessed and merry Christmas.  We went to my Dad's where all of my siblings were, except for my brother who lives behind my Dad--he was home sick with the stomach crud.  Luckily it didn't last long.  My kids all got too much stuff and I cooked far too many sweets, but we are all happy.  

As we go into this New Year I pray that God blesses each and every one of you.  

Since we were last together my blogging has been on the light side.  This week I participated in Seven Quick Takes.  I reviewed Strawberry Girl, a book I loved as a child, which is now out as an e-book.  Hidden Summit is on of Robin Carr's Virgin River books and Summer at Willow Lake is another romance.  I have a backlog of Catholic book to read/review but when I pick up my Kindle, mindless romance is that I pick.  I need to upgrade my reading material for the New Year.

    May the good Lord grant you all a very Happy New Year. Thank you RAnn for hosting all of us.

  2. Sometimes you need mindless. :) I'm just trying to clear our my reading list so I don't have to copy so many down onto NEXT year's! ;)

    A happy and blessed new year to fellow bloggers and readers!


  4. Happy New Year to my fellow bloggers! RAnn, I think you might like this week's selection, as I review a book trilogy, one that I've read at least once a year every year for the last three decades. (No, not Lord of the Rings, though I read that about once a year, too.) Also, posts on the last year's events, religious indifference and the 2011 Ecclesial Backbone Award!

  5. A happy, blessed New Year to all!
    This week's comments include:
    a Christmas message, with pictures from my Rosary Art Collection, a post
    about how quickly the secular Christmas ends, a new addition to my
    Vintage Media Collection, a post about the Holy Innocents, a post with a link to an online jigsaw puzzle site, a video of a homily from Fr. Anthony [gotta love EWTN's channel on YouTube!], my New Year's resolution [singular, not plural], and, of course, my weekly book list.

    Happy New Year, RAnn and all! Thanks for hosting. This week (Monday and Tuesday), I'll be offering my book, Come My Beloved: Inspiring Stories of Catholic Courtship for FREE on Amazon Kindle (and it's easy reading!) The link is included on my blog. God bless...

  7. TV for Catholics was busy this week, with the 2011 year in review and a series of Open Letters (to Rosie Larson, Ron Swanson and Bill Henrickson).

  8. Thanks for the invite to join you and other Catholic bloggers for Sunday Snippets. It looks like fun! May you and fellow bloggers be blessed abundantly in the new year!

  9. Happy New Year to all the great bloggers out there! Thanks for continuing to host the Snippets, RAnn!

    This week's topics include a Christian teacher in public education, high and low ecclesiologies, the dream of St. Jerome, a really nice and degraded society, and the ineffable and extravagant richness of God's love. All that and more at Bedlam or Parnassus.
