This week’s Catholic Carnival is up and running at Living Catholicism. From tips on how to raise holy kids to political commentary, consider this a cornucopia of introspective Catholic thought.
Other Catholic Carnival news: I’m stepping up to the plate for the first time and will be hosting next week’s Carnival right here. I’m planning on making the collection of blogs live up to its namesake by embracing a Carnivalesque theme. The days leading up to Lent are known as Carnival (derived from the carnelevarium, which is Latin for “withdrawal or removal of meat”). Next week begins this little time of merriment and good eats before the spartan Lenten season. (Can you believe Ash Wednesday is just around the corner and arrives on February 6th?) If you have any feasting or reveling traditions you’d like to share for the Carnival, be sure to drop me a line at kmwicker[at]gmail.com. Lenten reflections, Ash Wednesday memories as well as other Catholic submissions are welcome, too.
