Of Note – November 2019

Of Note November 2019

Let’s face it, we are all busy, modern women and we just don’t have the time or the energy to vet or read everything the Catholic blogosphere has to offer. We have streamlined that for you and offer you the most worthy, relevant reads that will keep you informed and in-tune without wasting your precious time. Each month, on the first Friday, you can find Of Note filled with posts that are inspiring, knowledgeable, cover current events, and liturgical living.

We are continually looking for new and lesser known bloggers to feature here on Of Note. If you write a blog or know of one we should take a look at leave a link in the combox or email me at: OfNote@CatholicSistas.com


Are you following our Christmas Shopping Challenge, a series prepping for Advent on Facebook? I sure am! For several years I’ve worked at getting all the Christmas shopping done before the first Sunday of Advent and let me tell you, it makes a huge difference in how I observe Advent. I can’t recommend it enough.

Let’s take a look at what is happening in the world of Catholic blogging.

Liturgical Living

If you are reading this on the day it is published, it is the Feast of All Saints. Kendra of Catholic All Year has a great post on how you and your family can observe All Hallowtide and pray for the dead.

Our own Allison Gingras recently wrote about the beautiful All Souls Novena, which begins today. There is a plenary indulgence attached to this devotion. Check it out here.

These beautiful lace cookies from My Catholic Kitchen are much easier to make than they look and are a lovely way to celebrate the Feast of St. Catherine of Alexandria on November 25th.

Hidden Gems

Ginny of Not So Formulaic wrote a wonderful post comparing the shortcomings of secular growth mindset to the truly superior Catholic growth mindset

Kathryn of Team Whitaker blogs about why she’s tabled the Instagram micro-blog in favor of macro-blogging, which is what this series is all about. Her perspective is right on target.

The Professionals

Have you heard Audrey Assad’s new collaboration with Porter’s Gate? J-P Mauro writes about it here and has a link to the song “Nothing to Fear” contained within. Take a listen. It’s a beautifully written song paired with gorgeous music and vocals.

Brad Miner writes a review of the movie “Love and Mercy”–the new film about Saint Faustina. I missed seeing this in theaters but I plan on finding it on DVD or a streaming service when it comes to one of those formats.

The Kingship of Christ was celebrated in the Traditional Latin Rite this past Sunday.  It will be celebrated in the Novus Ordo on November 24th this year. Steve Skojec writes about the very Catholic teaching regarding the social kingship of Christ.

Ink Slingers

I love Michelle’s hilarious Facebook posts. I love it even more when she blogs. This story had me in stitches.

From the Archives

In preparation for Advent, Michelle wrote this fantastic post, including her own examination of conscience, for Catholic Sistas a few years ago.
