Sunday Snippets-- A Catholic Carnival

Well, once again it is time to hop over to RAnn's blog for Sunday Snippets, where Catholic bloggers like me share our posts.  I've discovered some wonderful blogs here.   How about sharing yours?

WARNING: Very disturbing news article

This is one of the most disturbing reports I've ever seen.
I'm praying that the witnesses to this horrific crime won't be
traumatized for life; and I'm praying the same thing for the
officers who responded.  I can't imagine any training that could 
steel them to something like this.
I've also been trying to pray for the woman who did this, because she needs to be prayed for.  But.... it isn't easy.
The only one who doesn't need any prayers is that sweet, innocent baby... she died.
