Sunday Snippets - A Catholic Carnival (15 March 2014)

Welcome to this week’s installment of Sunday Snippets, a weekly gathering of bloggers of the Romish persuasion, and thanks yet again to RAnn for hosting (the big party is happening here).  There was no shortage of matter to discuss at Principium et Finis this week:

Sunday: Exhausted by my Culture War exploits of the previous week, I decided to discuss something light and sweet (and besides, winter had finally loosened its grip and the sap was flowing): “Thank The Lord For Maple Syrup”! [link]

Tuesday: On the other hand, it’s hard to keep a good Culture Warrior down, hence “Why We Fight” [link];Whom We Fight”.
as St. Paul reminds us, this fight has been going on for a long time.  I could just as easily have titled this post “

Wednesday: Which brings us to "Abortion Myth # 7" [link].  He whom we fight is called the Father of Lies, a couple of which I dissect in the latest of the Abortion Myths series.

Also, another clip from Mozart's Requiem [link] in keeping with the season of Lent; don't worry, we'll get to Bach's St. Matthew's Passion before Easter!

Thursday: More maple syrup in "The Sweet Side of Homeschooling - Maple Syrup" [link].  The first batch was ready, and provided me with an opportunity to point out that all manner of things fill the homeschool curriculum.

Friday:  "Liturgy of the Hours: The Invitatory - A Call To Relationship With God" [link].  A rumination on Psalm 95, latest in my series of posts on the Divine Office for laypeople.

Saturday: "Remember That Thou Art Dust" [link].  A few random thoughts on why the old way is the best way when it comes to Ash Wednesday.

Thanks for stopping by, God's Blessings on you and your family!

By the way, as for the question of the week, as to a resource to kickstart the last weeks of Lent: The L:iturgy of the Hours! (see Friday, above)
