Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival

Sunday Snippets is brought to you each week by RAnn at This, That and the Other Thing.

I started off this week by getting my saint for 2010. In my case, this is St. Teresa of Avila. I look forward to reading about her in the coming year. Anyone who wants a saint for 2010, go to St. Philomena's Garden and Marilena will let you know who your saint is for the coming year.

My Poem of the Week this week is Ember Days, a haiku I wrote in 2007. I still love the haiku form--brief and to the point. Perfect for an English major with ADD!

My Fred Astaire Friday was The Barkley's of Broadway trailer. Fred is once again paired with Ginger Rogers in lieu of the original female lead, Judy Garland who was struggling with her health and addictions.

I reviewed Spiritual Freedom by Father Dave Pivonka.

Yesterday I linked to an article on 8 sites for a free education. (Actually there are 9 in the original article.) Four are Catholic and five are not. Excellent resource for anyone who wants to broaden their horizons and further their education.

God willing, until next week, I wish you many blessings.

Thanks so much, Mary!

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
