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:  Any nun (sister) stories to tell?  

My Answer:  One sister I will never forget is Sr. Cephas, D.C.  She was living in my parish in her early retirement years, helping out with the school and whatever else struck her fancy.  Sometimes I think she caused more work than she did but....  anyway, whenever she'd see a baby girl she'd coo over her and then say "She'd make a really cute sister".  

This week I only had one post, a review of a clean romance novel, Swan Point.


  1. Thanks for hosting, RAnn!
    This week, I have a post about my Sunday reading,
    an article quoting an abortion activist (sad attitude!)
    a news article about how Planned Parenthood handled
    the rape of a 13-year old (about what you'd expect from
    Finally, of course, there is my book list.

  2. The first woman I wanted to marry was my first-grade nun, Sisiter Celine.

  3. RAnn, thank you for hosting! I wrote a post about my retreat. And the nuns I remember are the ones who ran the school where my sons attended. God bless!

  4. Thanks for hosting, as always, RAnn. I only have one post from the last couple of weeks, a quote from Mother Teresa.

    As for the nun stories, well, since I spent eight years discerning a religious vocation, I have a bunch. :) There was one sister, I will say, that I adored. Her name was Sr. Josephine. She was Mother Superior of the home I was in when I entered the convent and she was so holy, and yet so funny and loving and just awesome. :) I missed her when I was sent to another home and still miss her to this day.
