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.

Hope everyone had a blessed Easter.  We went to my Dad's parish for mass with him and then over to his house for dinner.  My brother and his son came over for a while so the kids got to hunt eggs and play.  The weather here in the middle of the week was rainy and miserable.  Unfortunately my son hit a puddle and hit a guardrail, taking out the transmission and radiator in the car.  Fortunately, he is fine and he didn't hit anyone else.  Yesterday the painters started working on the exterior of our house. We've been in this house fifteen  years and the only major work we've done is a kitchen renovation thirteen years ago, so it is fun seeing stuff change.  We have a bunch more work we plan to do in the near future, and so far the paint job looks great so I'm getting excited.  I  just have so much stuff to pick out and I'm not really good a visualizing what I cannot see.  

Blogging-wise, I've had several posts this week:
This Little Light of Mine is a book on teaching your children the faith during Ordinary Time.  It is written by Sunday Snippets regular, Kathleen Basi.  I'm also giving away a copy.  
A Tapestry of Fortunes is about several fifty-ish women who are living together.
Last Chance Bookclub is a romance in which the characters to to church and to bed.

Oh, and something else, I've started participating in New Evangelists Monthly, which is a link-up of Catholic bloggers where people submit their best monthly post.  I haven't started reading the posts yet, but I saw one familiar face over there--Hi Ellen!


  1. Thank you RAnn for hosting. It's still Easter and I'm still celebrating. I love octaves. It's especially grand that tomorrow in Divine Mercy Sunday.

  2. Exciting times! Hope you're able to enjoy it. Your summary of "Last Chance" made me laugh. Thanks again for the review!

  3. I wrote a fiction review, sort of.

  4. Thanks for hosting, RAnn!
    Thank God nobody was hurt in that car accident.
    This week I have the latest addition to my Rosary Art Collection, an updated post (about my Decorative Magnet Collection) from September,
    a video request from EWTN for Mother Angelica's birthday, a sickening, but, IMO, important, video about Planned Parenthood, the disturbing (to put it mildly) news about the morning after pill, Fr. Mark's wonderful Easter Sunday homily, my latest fan fiction (just one thing this week, Chapter 10 of Revealed Relationships), and of course, (drumroll and/or trumpet fanfare, please)....
    my weekly book list!!!

  5. Thanks for hosting, RAnn. It's good to read about your decorating/renovation fun. Glad to hear nobody was hurt in your son's accident.

  6. Thanks for hosting!
