Sunday Snippets–A Catholic Carnival

Yes, it’s a veritable carnival of Catholic blogs! Join us each week for “Sunday Snippets,” which is hosted by Rann at “This That and the Other Thing.” If you’re a Catholic blogger, please post a link to your site.

Here are my posts from the previous week:

May you be blessed with a wonderful week!

And here’s a bit of wisdom from that wonderful ancient doctor of the Church, St. Augustine:

Q–How do we describe the peace we shall have in Heaven?

A–In this world we have a tw-fold peace from Christ, our Peace. First, we have peace within in so far as we live in conformity with God’s will. This peace is not complete because we experience the struggle going on between our lower nature and our higher nature. Second, we hav epeace with others when we mutually love others. Here again, the peace is not complete since we do not know another’s thoughts. In Heaven, our peace will be complete. For we shall have no internal discord; and we shall know the secret thoughts of others.

(Taken from his work On the Gospel of John 77, 4. Quoted in Augustine for Everyone.)
