Sunday Snippets: Flannery O’Connor and Catholic Social Teaching.

Wow, Sunday again already? I’ve been busy this week getting my new blog, the Catholic Reading Project, up and running. (Well, that and trying to find an assisted living place for my father.) So my contributions to this blog have been rather meager: a post on a reading method that will help you make sense of all different kinds of written works, and one on some books by and about Flannery O’Connor that I recommend. I’ve got plenty of posts in the development stage, though, and will publish them as soon as I get time. Meanwhile, if you are at all interested in Catholic Social Teaching (and, by golly, you should be!), take a look at the new blog and consider joining us!

And, oh yeah, by request, I’ve added a little more info to my online profile, in case you’re interested. If you’d like to know what some other Catholic bloggers have been doing this week, don’t forget to take a look at Sunday Snippets — A Catholic Carnival.

Sunday Snippets: Year of Faith

The new Year of Faith was definitely my theme this past week, with a couple of posts about my new online Catholic Reading Project, and a feature on the catechism study package from Logos Bible Software. I’m so busy lately that I have trouble reading as much as I would like, so I’m going to start posting book reviews based on Kindle samples — most of my book selections these days start out with reading the downloadable Kindle sample of the book. I’ve found you can tell a lot from the sample — probably more than from flipping through a physical book in a book store — and since I’m doing lots of “sampling,” I may as well let others get the benefit of my experience.

If you’d like to know what other Catholic bloggers are up to these days, don’t forget to take a look at the Sunday Snippets round-up

Sunday Snippets–A Catholic Carnival

Sunday Snippets

Those of you who like reading Catholic blogs of whatever sort should take a look at Sunday Snippets — A Catholic Carnival, on the blog This, That, and the Other Thing, by another Catholic book blogger, RAnn. There you’ll find a round-up of the week’s posts from a variety of Catholic bloggers. I’ve already found a new one I like, TV for Catholics.

This past week I posted On Film Adaptations of Beloved Works of Literature and announced that you can now subscribe to this blog on Kindle, but then I collapsed under a terrific head cold. Unfortunately, when I can’t breathe, I can’t think either, so that was all the writing I did for the week. I’m glad to be breathing pretty freely today and back in the saddle!
