Happy New Year and hope you are also having a joyous and holy Epiphany! Welcome to another edition of Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival. We are a group of bloggers who gather once each week to share out best posts. We are all Catholic and blog at least somewhat about Catholic things; some do so exclusively, others only periodically. All are welcome to participate here.
To join in the fun, go to your blog and create a post titled Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival. In that post describe and link to any posts you want to share with the rest of us. Then go to Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival and follow RAnn's instructions at This That and The Other Thing for linking your post to other bloggers. It's a lot of fun and helps draw people who may not normally visit your blog...and you may even gain a new follower or two.
I did not post a Sunday Snippets last Sunday nor did I blog at all last week; my husband and I just returned from a week in Chicago. I did post some stuff prior to December 27 so I will offer these posts for your reading/viewing pleasure. My first post is called Christmas Message and is a YouTube Video from a site called God Love You. I will be posting links to videos from this site as an ongoing series.
My next post is called Glory to God in the Highest, Peace to Men of Good Will. This post is a sermon of Pope St. Leo the Great called Christian Remember Your Dignity and is actually from the Office of readings.
My final post is called Divine Intimacy - Part two of a Series (from my ongoing series). This post contains links to some of the readings for The First Sunday of Advent to the Fifth Sunday After the Epiphany. The book is available from Aquinas and More.
Ending this post I again ask that we offer a prayer for one another, our families and our culture; that we as a nation will once again embrace the Christian values that our great country is founded upon...those values that proclaim all men are created in the image and likeness of God and as such possess dignity and sanctity; and so being all men have the inalienable right to "Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness"....in that order!
In the words of Monsignor Schaedel, a very holy priest and the Vicar General of my Archdiocese, "Of one thing I am convinced; of one thing I am certain:
never fails!" Providence
Until next week, with faith, hope and trust in the
that will not fail us! Providence
