Sunday Snippets ~ A Catholic Carnival #12
First is This Is As Close To The Moon as I Will Ever Get. Not really a Catholic post, but this was just plain fun. I found it over at Astronomy Picture of the Day. Their link is in that post.
Next, Fr. Robert Barron shares his commentary on the new movie The Stoning of Soraya M. as well as his thoughts on Independence Day.
Speaking of Independence Day, I direct you to my Happy Birthday America post where I have written a prayer for our nation and also included a video of Lee Greenwood's Proud To Be An American.
Finally, as July is the month dedicated to The Precious Blood of Christ, look at the top of my sidebar for prayers for this devotion.
Have a Happy and Blessed Sunday!

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.
