Sunday Snippets

Although I have been blogging for 10+ years, I don't recall participating in Sunday Snippets. I remember hosting Catholic Carnival many years ago, so welcome to those who are visiting for the first time. Thank you, This That and The Other, for the wonderful opportunity to participate in this beautiful Catholic blogging community. This That and the The Other shares other Catholic blog posts HERE.

Saturday was the feast of Mary, Help of Christians. Learn more HERE.

One of my favorite Catholic fiction authors has a new book out which I review HERE.

Fr. Barron presents the fascinating background and theology of the controversial  20th century Catholic theologian Hans Urs von Balthasar. Watch it HERE.

Thursday was the feast of St. Rita of Casica, the patron of desperate, impossible causes and situations. She is also the patron saint of abuse victims, difficult marriages, infertility, parenthood, sterility, and widows. Many us can relate to her story HERE and benefit from her insights.

Pope Francis celebrating Mass in the Holy Land shares his message of peace and how it can be strengthened in our world. In another homily this week, he encapsulates the true meaning of peace.

What are your plans for the summer? Not sure, yet!

 Have a Happy and Blessed Memorial Day!
