A New Year and a New Catholic Carnival

I had thought about a Babylonian theme, but then I thought about it still being the Christmas season, with Epiphany and New Years not too far behind us. Babylon would have just been sad and kinda depressing. So I decided to categorize the week's posts with short prayers.

Blessed be Jesus in His angels and in His saints.
Daily Gratia has a post on Blessed Father Damien.
At Just Another Day of Catholic Pondering she is Aiming for Mary.
Father Tabb died in 1909. At View from the Core we see some of his poetry.
Chris gives us a post about his family at Sanctus Christopher (Great name btw!).

There's a post at Ὁι Λόγοι regarding Christ's teaching to be in the world,
but not of it.

Blessed be Jesus true God and true Man.
