Hello, and welcome to Sunday Snippets–A Catholic Carnival. We are a group of Catholic bloggers who gather weekly to share our best posts with each other.  For this third Sunday of Lent, we’re linking up with RAnn of This, That and The Other Thing. My offerings this week:

Have you had “The Talk” with your middle-schooler where I wrote about having the alcohol talk with my kids is actually more important to me than having the sex talk.

In Thank you, Papa I say thank you and happy trails to Pope Emeritus Benedict.

In my 7-Quick Takes, I wrote about the 7 Things I like About Alcoholics Anonymous.

And in Dear God, I write a thank you letter to God for the blessings in my life.

So that’s it!  Head on over to the Catholic Carnival and add your own link to participate.  Be sure to check out the other posts as they’re always filled with such hope and inspiration!

So excited to post my inaugural Sunday Snippets with a group of Catholic bloggers who gather weekly to share our best posts with each other. This week Sunday Snippets is hosted over at This That and the Other Thing, so be sure to check out the rest of the bloggers over there.

This past week I blogged about

Different Kinds of Saints where i wrote about the differences between the way my mom prays and the way I do.  In Sister Weekend and Mother Teresa, I wrote about spending the weekend at the beach with my mother and five sisters. My mother gave me a beautiful meditation prayer written by Mother Teresa.

Earlier in the week, I wrote about how I am grateful to be sober in this post and this post.

Here I wrote about how I use the Catholic type of prayer called Lectio Divina to practice the 11th Step of AA. And in this post and this post I wrote about beginning Step Four in the 12 Steps of AA.

Have a great week everybody and thank you so much for including me!
