Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival

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

Music Monday this week was one of my favorite pieces, Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis by Ralph Vaughan Williams.

On Art and Beauty Tuesday, we continued our series on A Voyage of Life by Thomas Cole, looking at Youth.

For Scripture Saturday, we talked about living your life for Christ and not for yourself.

On Thursday, I talked about a group called Downsize DC which wants to decrease wasteful spending and dishonesty in Washington.

On Friday, I posted a neat video by a 94 year old woman who teaches us how to cook Depression era food.

Finally, on Saturday, I posted about the role of the body in Christianity.

I pray that everyone has a blessed week.

The Tallis piece is one of my favorites. Let's see, it was...thirteen years ago when I saw it performed live in the Sydney Opera House. We were sitting in the choir stalls behind the orchestra. One of the highlights of my life (pre-kids, anyway!).

I love that piece! So moving!

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
