Sunday Snippets, A Catholic Carnival

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

This week's "theme" was Word War II.  On Monday, we listened to the second movement of Beethoven's 7th symphony, which was recently used as a musical backdrop during the climactic scene of The King's Speech. 

On Tuesday, we looked at a photograph of an English bride leaving her bombed home to go to her wedding, during the war.  

On Wednesday, we read Wait for Me, written in 1942 by Russian Poet and soldier Konstantin Simonov.   

Also worth mentioning is the beautiful French holy card I found for Valentine's Day, by way of a beautiful website, Holy Card Heaven

For Scripture Saturday we looked at the Tower of Babel and the tendency of mankind to overreach with technology. 

I hope everyone has a beautiful and sunny week!

Wow, I missed an entire week of commenting. I did read every day, though. I do that in the morning before work. I don't have the time to comment then. Then the day gets away from me. So sorry.

I knew when I saw *11* new comments, it had to be you catching up!

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
