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:  Tell us what you like best about your parish.  For me it is the fact that it has been "home" for over 25 years.  I met my husband in a parish singles group, got married there (ugly as the church was), baptized my babies there and watched them make First Communion there.  I've seen two of them confirmed there, and my youngest goes to school there.  Even if I don't know the people (and honestly, I don't know a lot of them) I recognize a lot of faces and have seen a lot of kids grow up.  Now I'm starting to recognize the names of those who die, but such is the path of life.


  1. Thanks for hosting, RAnn! This week, in addition to one old post, I have the news of Fr. Benedict Groeschel's passing,
    my special Sunday foods, some word play, an old blog I've rediscovered, a post on internet giving (inspired by the book, "Try Giving Yourself Away," a new item in my Break-Off Collection, a post about the Elsie Dinsmore books, fan fiction (a new chapter added to Unsuited To Each Other), and, of course, my book list.

  2. Thank you once again for hosting, RAnn.
    I love my parish for its "dynamic orthodoxy". When I first attended Mass there, I was blown away. It was a weekday, no special holy day, and the church was packed . I had to ask if something special was going on. The sister I asked didn't seem to understand, because for her and this bunch, it was just another day and just the way things were everyday in this parish. I have since found it so, daily.
