Sunday Snippets~A Catholic Carnival
This version of the carnival gives us a chance to highlight as many of our Catholic posts as we like.
Here are mine for Sunday, April 19th:
1. Today the Church celebrates the awesome feast of Divine Mercy. The post, Divine Mercy in My Soul is my own reflection on the feast and God's unfathomable mercy.
2. In Everything is Easier With Jesus, I have reflected in response to another blogger's series on trust. (see the end of that post to a link to her blog.)
3. And finally a post on the sometimes difficult graces of true friendship. There is also a follow up post to that one.
Please support this new version of the Catholic Carnival.
Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival is a weekly opportunity to share our best posts with the wider Catholic blogging community. To participate, create a post highlighting posts that would be of interest to Catholics and link to the host blog at http://rannthisthat.blogspot.com. Go to the host blog and leave a comment giving a link to your post.
Psalm 45: Canticle of Love to the King
My heart overflows with a good theme;
I address my verses to the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
You are fairer than the sons of men;
Grace is poured upon Your lips;
Therefore God has blessed You forever.
Gird Your sword on Your thigh, O Mighty One,
In Your splendor and Your majesty!
And in Your majesty ride on victoriously,
For the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness;
Let Your right hand teach You awesome things.
Your arrows are sharp;
The peoples fall under You;
Your arrows are in the heart of the King’s enemies.
Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of joy above Your fellows.
All Your garments are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia;
Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made You glad.
Kings’ daughters are among Your noble ladies;
At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.
