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.

Question of the week:  Do you have any spiritual New Year's Resolutions?

My Answer:  Yes.  To pray more.  I got a tablet for Christmas and downloaded the iBreviary app and so far have been praying it more often than before.  I also signed up for a bunch of stuff to be sent to my email--Bible studies, Catechism passages and more.  Sometime I read it, sometimes I don't but I know I read it more than I would if it wasn't showing up in my inbox.

No blog posts this week except a review of a mindless romance.  However, I'll share a picture I took of my daughter after Mass on Christmas.


  1. Beautiful picture of your daughter, RAnn!

    This week my son and I reviewed a Christian's children's book called "Biff and Becka's Stupendous Vacation."

    As for the question of the week: I am not a fan of New Year's resolutions but one of my goals is to be more intentional in my prayer life and staying faithful to the times I have set aside for prayer.

    I hope you all have a blessed feast of the Holy Family. :)

  2. Thanks for hosting, RAnn! My spiritual resolution is to practice Lectio Divina every day, using a passage, or part of a passage, from that day's Mass readings. And I'm not going to wait until New Year's Day to begin. I'm starting tomorrow.

  3. Thank you for hosting.
    I have been working on being more meek.
    Blessings to all, and pray on the feast of the Holy Family for the strengthening of the family.

  4. I am also working on increasing my prayer time. I've got some books and might try one of Scott Hahn's Bible Study courses through the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology. I would say this is a rather large gap in my education. :)
    Thank you for hosting, RAnn, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!

  5. Your daughter's a cutie, RAnn! I too want to increase my prayer time. This year my resolution was to make all Sundays and holy days ... I just fell short. So that's a continuing resolution, so to speak,
