Sunday Snippets – A Catholic Carnival

February 5, 2012

This post is linked to Sunday Snippets, a meme hosted by RAnn at This That and the Other Thing. Please join us and comment.

Over the past two weeks I’ve had the great pleasure of corresponding with an exceptional Norwegian photographer who specializes in the Northern Lights but also has other great work.  You can find a few of his photographs and an interview with him at The Photography of Bjørn Jørgensen. Serious amateurs, professionals, and photography junkies will find it very interesting.  Others will find the images just plain gorgeous.

Fundamental Spiritual Truths is a meditation on part of the Prologue of the Holy Rule of St. Benedict.

At Sabbath Moments I wrote a little about wedding rings, a book by Pope Benedict XVI, and thoughts on the crucifix linked to part of the Prologue of St. Benedict’s Rule.

The House Built on Rock talks about dealing with temptation.

I don’t know how the techies and scientists at NASA produce these images, but this, taken in January, is from the Suomi satellite launched last October. Read more about it here.

If for no other reason than the kind of data we can gather about the universe and earth, NASA should be kept alive.  And I can see North and Central America from my living room! 🙂
