Sunday Snippets: A Catholic Carnival~July 19th

This week for our Catholic Carnival I offer two posts; one is my review for Catholic Company on the Book of Life, a narrative retelling of the New Testament.
Then in Taking Care of Eden I tell of how I managed to find a peaceful, God~filled moment after the trials and tribulations of a difficult evening of caring for a friend's garden.
I am posting this on Saturday as I don't blog on Sundays. New readers can read about that in the Closing Sundays post on my sidebar. If you are reading this on Sunday, you can go to the main page of my blog to see and hear the post that is scheduled to publish early Sunday morning.
Have a restful and blessed Sunday!
Thanks as always to our hostess, RAnn at This That and the Other Thing for running Sunday Snippets: A Catholic Carnival.

Closing Prayer

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.
