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 suggested resources for those trying to kickstart these last weeks of Lent?  

My Answer:  I've really been enjoying Fr. Robert Barron's daily emails.  You can subscribe here.

This week I published a Monday Memes post where I previewed books I'm reading or have received in the mail.  I wrote about something I reflected on while in the adoration chapel this week.  FYI, I have floaters in one eye which appeared about two weeks ago and I had a couple of instances of seeing light flashes.  They are checking me for retinal detachment but so far, so good, no problem and the floaters are a harmless nuisance that a common in near-sighted people as they age.   I reviewed Come Home to Me, which is a general market romance and Blossom Street Brides, which while a general market romance, is squeaky clean. 

Don't forget, I'm giving away a copy of All You Can Dream Buffet.


  1. Thank you very much for making this Catholic Carnival available.

  2. Thanks for hosting, RAnn! This week I have a childhood memory (my Throwback Thursday re-post), a post about ethnically exclusive clubs, a post about hamantashen, this week's fan fiction, and, of course, my book list.
    I'm keeping your family in my prayers.

  3. Praying for you and your eye problem, RAnn.

    This week I am reposting a super popular post: 10 Meatless Meals for Lent mainly because a lot of people have shared their own ideas over the last couple of years that I wanted to highlight.

    Question of the week: I enjoy reading the meditations offered in The Word Among Us.

  4. Last weeks of Lent?! So soon?

    The Imitation of Christ used to be a regular Lenten devotion for me. As mortification is a major part of the author's programme, I recommend reading from it.

    I've already blogged a bit about my approach to Lent and Lenten resources ( (, so I don't have a lot more to offer this week. I do think it is a worthy question, though: How are we keeping Lent? How open am I to the movement of the Holy Spirit during these thin times? What's new today...that I might be able to see with new eyes?

  6. Saw your post about the emails from Fr. Barron...truly it was an honor to see him speak and meet him at the conference this weekend!
