Sunday Snippets: A Catholic Carnival (06/14/2015)

Sunday Snippets

It has feels like it has been forever since I’ve participated in Sunday Snippets! Now that I have graduated, I am happy to be back. Hopefully, I will be able to get back into regular and consistent blogging and participating here. I missed it!

So, to play catch up, here is the rundown of my post from the last few months:

Book Review: Together With You

Book Review: An Amish Cradle

The Saints and Feasts in June 2015

You Are Marvelous in His Eyes (Some encouragement for those who are struggling)

Book Review: Not Cool

The Sacred Heart = Compassion (must watch video!)

Sunday Snippets: A Catholic Carinival (July 20, 2014)

Sunday Snippets

Time for another weekly roundup over at RAnn’s place. Why not join us with your own posts?

This week I posted my weekly goals, a short meditation on the Sacrament of Baptism and shared our curriculum plans for the coming school year.

Question of the Week

Were there any religious sisters in your parish when you were growing up?  Are there any now?  Which community (ies)?

I was born in NYC and our parish, Good Shepherd, was run by the Paulist Fathers. We moved around a bit, and I don’t remember if (or what) religious communities were on our parishes. Eventually, we moved to the Hazlet and Keansburg, NJ area, which used to house a lot of Sisters of Mercy. Nowadays, there are only two or three sisters left there. After marrying Michael, we belonged to different parishes, some which did and some which did not have religious communities attached to them. In our most recent parish of Eatontown, NJ, the Filippini Sisters are there, and they are wonderful! In the parish we belong to now does not have a community of sisters.

It’s Saturday, which means another weekend of Sunday Snippets! This week I have three posts:

Weekly Goals

A mini-meditation for the Sacred Heart

Book Review: Journal of a Soul

Although not posts, I also put together two videos, a welcome video for my home page, and Five “Fun Facts” about me for my about page. I also did two more videos for new email subscribers (you will have to sign up to see those, hint, hint ๐Ÿ˜‰ ).

Now for the question of the week: Tell us about your pastor.

We are really fortunate to have a holy, personable, and wonderful pastor. Father Jay loves the Church, loves his vocation, and loves the people of the parish. His homilies are thought-provoking, and he isn’t afraid to shy away from “controversal” topics. And yet, he does so with tact and kindness. He is truly a wonderful gift to the parish, and clearly, I like him a lot!

Another week for Sunday Snippets. My two posts for this week include a book review for my friend Catherine Francis’ new book, Christian America: Shattered Dreams in a Veiled Society and a “blurb” about the Ascension.

Question of the Week:

May is the month of Mary. ย Are there an Marian devotions other than the rosary which you use?

Every Saturday in May, and sometimes other Saturdays of the year, I pray the Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Also, one of my prayer books, Handbook of Prayers, contains a series 31 days of short prayers/meditations for the month of May that use.

Sunday Snippets

It has been a long time since I’ve participated in Sunday Snippets and I’ve missed it terribly! Thankfully, spring classes are over and I only have one class during the summer; therefore, I should be able to participate more regularly.

Of course since I rarely blogged the whole 4 1/2 months of classes, I didn’t really have anything to link up. In any case, here are my two posts, both reviews:

The Gift of Love by Amy Clipston

A Subtle Grace by Ellen Gable

Question of the Week:

What are your plans this summer?

My in-laws are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary in August. They are having a special mass to renew their vows, and have a party; however, everyone in the family is also taking a trip to Ocean City, MD for 5 days. It is our (my husband’s and mine) first real vacation in 9 1/2 years so we are very excited! Other than that, we plan do a few day trips, send Andrew to basketball camp (not overnight!) and spend time at the pool/beach.

I am linking up two posts this week to RAnn’s Sunday Snippets:

Do You Throw Tantrums at God?

What is the Cost of a Child? Priceless!

Question of the week:

Where do you get your Catholic reading material?

I get them through different sources such as Amazon and our local bookstore.

It seems like it’s been forever since I’ve been able to participate in Sunday Snippets! It’s been a bout a month really, though. We have had every weekend completely booked for the last several weeks. I’ve had no time on the computer at all, let alone being able to link up!

In any case, here we are. I’m going to share what I’ve posted over the last few weeks. It seems like a lot but several of them are recipes. ๐Ÿ™‚
