I was in Olivares, a small town near Seville, for Holy Week 6 years ago, with a Spanish couple, atheist husband, lapsed Catholic wife.

The procession, and the flamenco Ave Maria (in Latin) had us in tears, all three.

If at all possible, a must-do.

That's a really precious shot ... and I mean that in a good way. I wish mantillas would catch on over here.

They're very cute. BTW I sewed a large comb on my veil so I can keep it on my head; it kind of gives it a Spanish look.

I think this is the cousin of Señorita Mantilla Amontillado, her name is Angelita, isn't it Fr. Longenecker? I heard she became a nun.

Querida Crescat, it's your blog and you can post whatever you wish. For my part, I do not like Spanish mantilla because it kills the spirit of headcovering: humility of women before the Blessed Sacrament. Looking like a freaking peacock != humility.
