Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival

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

Thursday, I talked about a fascinating New York Times article about "The Americanization of Mental Illness" which talked about the exporting not only of medical knowledge from the West, but of specific mental illnesses themselves as well as some theories about the effect of current Western thought and culture on mental health and recovery, ending with a theory the article proposes about the loss of a spiritual focus on mental health.

For 7 Quick Takes Friday I talked a bit about relief for Haiti and where to donate towards that worthy cause, and about Divine Mercy and some of the beautiful prayers written by St. Fausina.

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
