Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival

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

This week's Music Monday featured Josquin des Prez' El Grillo (The Cricket) a delightful madrigal.  For Art and Beauty Tuesday we looked at William Bouguereau's La Gouter (Just a Taste)--just in time for summer. Scripture Saturday features a great EWTN sermon on Martha and the importance of hospitality. In between times, I featured two poems, one, Emily Dickinson's Hope is a Thing With Feathers, read and illustrated beautifully, and the other, Billy Collins' The Lanyard, which ushers in our new Poetry Wednesday feature.

I hope everyone has a cool and peaceful 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
