Sunday Snippets - A Catholic Carnival (30 March 2014)

     Another week past, another Sunday Snippets, a sort of Catholic Carnival in which a few of us blogsters share our posts for the week while we sit around the fire roasting marshmallows and singing cowboy songs.  Well, except for the marshmallows, and the cowboy songs.  And the fire.  Oh, but there is a question of the week, which this week is "Who is your favorite Catholic author?"  To which the answer is "J.R.R. Tolkien", so now the rest of you don't need to bother.
     By the way, the main gathering place for us snippeteers is This That and the Other Thing, where our hostess RAnn is passing out the marshmallows.  Click HERE to see what my compadres have been writing.


     Meanwhile, we've had another busy week here at Principium et Finis:

Monday - A meditation on the Annunciation, which I managed yet again to post on the feast day itself, inspired by a beautiful stained glass window in the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Portland, Maine. [link]


Tuesday - A (figurative) call to arms in defense of Truth and truths.  Saddle up! [link]

Wednesday - There are those who claim that it's cruel to bring children into a world where they might be abused or unwanted. Guess what we say to that here at Principium et Finis! [link]

Thursday - Thought I'd try out the "Throwback Thursday" thing.  What was going on with those Greek verbs by the Sea of Galilee? [link]

Friday - The latest installment of my series of posts on the Liturgy of the Hours: Morning Prayer [link]

- Also, another spine-tingling selection from J.S. Bach's Lenten masterpiece, St. Matthew's Passion [link]
