Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival

Sunday Snippets is brought to you each week by RAnn at This, That and the Other Thing.
Its been quite a while since I've done a Sunday Snippets so this will be long.

Way back before Christmas, I talked about Jesus being Peace.  On the shortest day of the year, I tried to draw attention to a U.S. Army General threatening pregnant soldiers and the fathers of their unborn children with court martial.  In the same post, I talked about the call in some circles, to enact a one child policy in the U.S.  Along those same unfortunate political lines, the president signed an executive order giving an international criminal police organization immunity from prosecution in the United States.

On a more spiritual note, I talked about the surprising line for the Sacrament of Confession at my parish.

Moving into January, I talked about Marian consecration and January's virtue, perfection.  I also spoke of Epiphany and all it represents as well as the symbolism and meaning of Christ's Baptism in the Jordan as seen through icons.

I hope everyone has a blessed week!

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
