Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival

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

Last week's Music Monday was Rejoice Greatly from Handel's Messiah. We also had a great video about Advent.

Tuesday highlighted an important article by Mark Shea which talked about how vulnerable we are as a nation, and as individuals, when we deny sin and personal responsibility and instead, hunger only after constant validation and affirmation. Without frank examination of our own shortcomings, again, as a nation and as individuals before God, we are much more vulnerable to a politically and spiritually corrupt ideology that promises happiness without a price.

Wednesday we had a quote from Isaiah about the unequaled place that the One God has among all things.

Thursday we saw a video clip of John Lennon and Yoko Ono talking about how overblown the concept of overpopulation is.

One thing from Quick Takes Friday, I wanted to highlight, was the Star of Bethlehem website which explains, in scientific terms, the astronomy behind the Star of Bethlehem, the darkening of the sky at Jesus' crucifixion, and the "woman clothed with the sun" of Revelation.

Have a good week everyone!!!

Another busy week of blogging for you. I've laid off for a bit, but I'll get back in the swing soon.

It really is hard to blog when you are sick!

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
