Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival

Hello, and welcome 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 participate, go to your blog and create a post titled Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival. In it, discuss and link to your posts for the week--whether they deal with theology, Catholic living or cute Catholic kids. I'm mostly a book blogger so my posts are generally book reviews, some Catholic, some not. Make sure that post links back here. Once you publish it, come back here and leave a link below.

We also have a yahoogroup; signing up for it will get you one weekly reminder to post.  Click here to sign up.

The only post I have this week is a review of a Kindle freebie romance.  

I'd like to ask you all for prayers.  Back in the late 1990's when I first got online I discovered AOL message boards.  One in particular was a favorite--a Catholic Moms board.  Those of us who posted regularly were generally 30 something moms with young kids, and over the years a core group of us has stuck together and we now have a private group  on facebook.  Now we are generally the parents of teens, or in many cases, grandparents.  A few of us even still have young kids.  A few months ago, one of the "anchors" of the group, a woman with great wisdom and compassion, a woman who always seemed to know what to say to pull us together when we started to fuss and bicker, announced that she had lung cancer.  Kathy is in her mid-fifties, will become a grandmother for the first time this spring, and is the mother of a teen with special needs.  She is also the wife of a man who has a non-cancerous brain tumor (but don't think non-cancerous means non-harmful).  This week she received news that the cancer has spread to her liver.  Please pray for her and her family.  

Congratulations to Sunday Snippets regulars Kate Basi and Christian LeBlanc and new reader Seth Peters who won Jesus Christ The Infancy Narratives.  


  1. Prayers for Kathy and her family!

  2. Thanks for hosting, RAnn! I am praying for Kathy and her family.

  3. RAnn, I'm sorry to hear about your friend, Kathy. The group itself is a wonderful accomplishment and testament to friendship. Kathy and her family will have my prayers.

    I didn't feel all that busy this week, but when I posted this I realized I've said alot. Hope something speaks to someone.

    God bless all in our Advent journey to Christmas!

  4. Definitely will keep Kathy in mind. Thanks for hosting as always.

    Thanks so much for hosting and I'm praying for Kathy...

  6. Will pray for Kathy. Thanks for hosting, RAnn.

  7. I have a couple of mundane posts about post-hurricane / post-nor'easter downed tree removal. Thanks for hosting and I'm sorry to hear about Kathy. Lung cancer took my father before he was 50 years old. Peace.

  8. Prayers for your friend, RAnn.

    Our song this week was People Look East and I posted about Advent as a Subversive Act.

  9. Kathy will be among my intentions at Mass tomorrow.
    So hard to hear of yet another wounded member of Christ's Body.

  10. Hi RAnn, I know I haven't contributed in quite awhile! I haven't done much blogging over these last few months. Will add Kathy and you to my prayers. Advent Blessings to you!
