Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival

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

I started the week talking about the Global Climate Change Treaty moving through the UN that would force the U.S. to pay a "climate debt" to third world countries and allow the UN governance over the United States.

I published a poem of mine entitled The Poetry of Beauty.  I think beauty is important in Christianity--something that has been all but abandoned in the modern world.  Sometimes being edgy and extreme for its own sake does not reap good fruit.  Thankfully, there is an art renewal movement that encourages and rewards talented artists who still focus on inspiration, storytelling and beauty.  

I posted about a fascinating article on discovering one's root sin.  I was surprised at the manifestations of Pride, Vanity and Sensuality--it wasn't what I expected.  Vanity, for example, is not about surface appearance, but about putting stock in what others think of you, to the point where you change your beliefs and behavior to accommodate others' opinions.

I also did a YouTube video for All Saint's Day using the Litany of the Saints from Easter and images of the saints mentioned.

I pray that you all have a blessed week and a blessed November.

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
