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.

Please send up vehicle prayers for us.  The one my son had an accident in a couple of weeks ago is back in the shop and we giving serious thought to replacing it.   It's an older "boring" car with low mileage but how much money do you pour into something?  We tend to drive them till the drop and always wonder if we'd be better off fixing what we have, but still...

I have only three posts this week for you.  Rescue Team is a Christian romance.  The Apple Orchard is a general market romance.  I also announced the winner of This Little Light of Mine.


  1. Thanks for hosting, RAnn!

  2. Dear RAnn,

    Thanks again for hosting this week. I hope your son is okay. This week, I wrote about getting to know St Expeditus and a petition granted.

    Have a great Sunday!

  3. Thank you RAnn, yet once again and always. I'm offering a "vehicle prayer" for your good discernment. Safety rules!

    This week Baptism and the Holy Spirit were the subject of two poems. Also an amazing pooch captured my heart, and the Italians who are following theirs, so I had to share it.

  4. We're constantly wondering the same thing about my husband's truck...

  5. Thanks for hosting. Please put up my link for me because I'm too busy enjoying my retreat with the Jesuits to do it myself!!

  6. I didn't realize your son was in an accident. I hope he is okay. Will pray for you as you discern what to do with your vehicle.

    This week I have my weekly goals, head trauma drama (my son's visit to the hospital) and Theological Thursday: Receiving the Precious Blood.

  7. RAnn, thanks for hosting. Good luck with the car thing. I try to figure out if I am spending good money after bad!
    I posted - Lonely is ...; Deo Gratias - Boston and Sunrises; It is the Lord and Light in the Darkness - Kindness of Strangers.
    Weird week for me. God bless!

  8. Hi missed last week as I traveled across 3 time zones on three planes and a shuttle bus which took 12 hours only to stand in front of my parents condo completely stumped by the request to "please scroll down" !!

    I ended up stumbling in the dark, lugging heavy suit cases through gardens and rock strewn areas, hauled luggage over a HIGH fence, climbed over it, almost crushing my head and knocked on my parents patio door. The look on their faces made it all worth while

      Beautiful story.....

  9. Hi RAnn, I pray that your son's accident was minor and no one was injured. We just made the decision to trade in my 18 year old car and buy a 10 year old minivan. A friend bought the minivan from an auction and sold it to us for what he'd paid for it. Needless to say, we got it under market value! The minivan is in fantastic shape with low mileage. Good luck with your decision!

    Thank you for hosting this beautiful link up.

    I need to get my fam going for mass now but I can't wait to get back here tonight and click to your and the other bloggers' snippets.

    Have a lovely Sunday:)
