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: Does your family have any Easter traditions?

My Answer:  I do Easter baskets for the kids (and keep some candy for the grownups too).  Some years we get together with extended family; other years folks have other things to do.  Of course, we go to Mass as a family.

I'd like to thank all of you for your prayers this last week.  The peaceful death for which we were praying happened about 3:30 Tuesday afternoon.  I wrote about it here.  For some reason blogging hasn't been on the top of my list this week.  The wake is going to be tomorrow night and the funeral on Monday.  I have several cousins I haven't seen since we were kids who are going to come in for it, so for all the sorrow, it should be fun in its own way, if that makes any sense.  Because of Holy Week we were not able to bury him last week, so we all went home and back to "real life".  We are all meeting for lunch on Easter and will be together until all is done.  As I've told people here, considering the circumstances, things went as well as could have been expected, and we were fearing a whole lot worse.  God was good to us.


  1. God bless you and your family, RAnn. May all the blessings of Easter be poured out on your dad as he experiences the great mercy and love of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit..

  2. Thank you for hosting, RAnn. You and your family are in my prayers.
    This week's posts include an announcement from EWTN, a post from Timothy Cardinal Dolan, the latest item in my Rosary Art Collection, my latest fanfic (which started out as a meditation), and, of course, my book list.
    May we all have a blessed Easter Season.

  3. RAnn I am so sorry for your loss. I will pray fro the repose of your mother's soul. May she rest in peace. May the Joy of this Easter Season be a source of encouragement and strength to you and your family during this time of loss.

  4. So sorry for your loss - may your Dad rest in peace.

  5. Remember Easter. He is risen and so will we.

  6. It has been a very long week for you. I pray that the family will have time for rest. You have been in my prayers, especially today.
