Catholic Carnival 141

Feel the rhythm! Feel the rhyme! Get on down, its Carnival time!

October is the month of the Rosary and a couple of posts are about the Rosary.

Elena at My Domestic Church shares her favorite Rosary links and resources.
Melissa from A Third Way also shares various Rosary resources with us.

There are even more posts this week about family and children. These are especially dear to me since my wife and I are expecting our first child in the last part of December.

Sarah, the author of Snoring Scholar, gives us 40 Reasons to have children. At A Catholic Mom Climbing the Pillars, we have a post about the benefits of an evening spent without television. SFO Mom wrote a Pro-Life post in Just Because its Legal Doesn't Make it Right.

There were also some posts about readings from Mass this last week.

Heidi Saxton posts at Streams of Mercy that the greatest healing is spiritual not physical as Christ's healing was attributed to the Devil. Heart, Mind, and Strength had a great post last week on the importance of thanksgiving, a la Naaman and the Samaritan leper.

Then there were the posts about Catholic writings. St Teresa of Avila and Pope Benedict XVI are mentioned among others.

Catholic Fire has a great post about St Teresa of Avila, Doctor of the Church and important inspiration to at least two other Doctors of the Church (St Therese of Lisieux and St John of the Cross). Daughter of the King wrote a review of "The Apostles" by Pope Benedict XVI. Christine Schult posts about Pope Benedict XVI's teachings on families. Running Red Lettered considers writing a memoir about her Catholic life and experiences.

Richard has a post about which would be the lesser of two evils if both won their party's nomination, voting for Giuliani or Clinton.

I also want to include a post from Faith and Country about the Life Chain in Kenosha and a post from Dominican Idaho about suffering.

I can't seem to download pictures right now, so those will have to wait.
Good night and God bless all of you.

O Sacrament Most Holy,
O Sacrament Divine,
All praise and all thanksgiving,
Be every moment Thine.
