Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival

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

Our Music Monday this week was one of my favorite pieces, How Lovely is Thy Dwelling Place by Brahms. For Art and Beauty Tuesday, we looked at The Campfire by Winslow Homer.    For Poetry Wednesday, I featured Sonnet 29 by Shakespeare, When in Disgrace with Fortune and Men's Eyes.

Two posts this week have been borrowed from Paul at Sober Catholic.  The first is about a man's encounter with St. Dymphna and the second is about this 40 day period we are currently in between the Feast of the Transfiguration and the Triumph of the Holy Cross as being a second Lent.

Next I reported on an article, The Transfiguration of Creation by Vincent Rossi.

Three of my posts have been the prayers of the Novena to Our Lord of the Transfiguration from EWTN. These posts will continue for 6 more days until the 9 day novena is over.

Scripture Saturday this week is about the tie between the Feast of the Transfiguration and the dropping of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima, which also happened on August 6.

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
