Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival

AWESOME!
This post is from another one of my old blogs.
Sometimes I get overwhelmed, blown away, by the thought that since Our Lord instituted the Holy Eucharist, more than 2000 years ago, He has been received by more people than we could ever possibly imagine. More than that, He is present, fully, totally present, in the Blessed Sacrament in countless Tabernacles in countless Churches and Chapels all over the world right now and at every moment. AWESOME!!!! Moreover,
every day, at every Mass, the priest breaks the Consecrated Host. Every day, at every Mass, Communion is distributed to the faithful. And yet, Christ is not divided, not multiplied, not diminished, not increased.
Side note: More than once, people have said to me that all this is mathematically impossible. My usual, highly theological reply :) is:
"Mathematics, schmathematics!"

The Yada Yada Prayer Group
I'm reading the "Yada Yada Prayer Group" series (again!) and I have to admit I have mixed feelings about the books. (Mostly, I love them.)
The author, Neta Jackson, is a Protestant, and I don't agree with everything she writes.
However, I love the way the women support each other with their prayers.
I like that the author uses several translations of the Bible.
I love the way Avis praises God BEFORE He answers a prayer.
I DEFINITELY like the way the Yada Yadas visit each others' churches, and
I wish someone would do a Catholic series along those lines, with Catholics
of different rites attending each others' liturgies

Published simultaneously in my secular blog, My First Word Was "Read".

Thankful for THAT??
Can I REALLY be thankful for a cut finger, a burn, a stubbed toe?
Believe it or not, the answer is YES! I can be thankful that I have something to offer up for the Souls in Purgatory. And come to think of it, that's really something to be thankful for, because every soul I help to get out of Purgatory is another SAINT in Heaven, praying for me.

Pro-Abortion Children's Authors
There are children's authors who are pro-abortion. HELLO!!! How many of their books do these authors expect an aborted child to read?


Thank God I can smell the poop, because
that means I can also smell the roses.
And thank God for roses!
