Sunday Snippets: A Catholic Carnival~July 26th
This week for our Catholic Carnival I offer you first, What do I Know of Holy. This song of the same title is by a Christian group called Addison Road. The video is there along with my own reflections on what I know of holy~which is not too much!
The second post, Judge Not? is a response to a meditation/reflection I read by Abbot Joseph over at Word Incarnate. It speaks of the reality of absolute truth and our culture's concern about political correctness. Again my post is just my own response; Abbot Joseph's is the real treasure~be sure to read it. The link to Word Incarnate is in my Judge Not? post.
Enjoy the Carnival and have a 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.
