  • Cute! Thanks!

  • Fr Longenecker

    nice! and a link from me back to your blog. Happy New Year.

  • Is Senora Mantilla de Amontillado, my professora at Universidad de Salamanca the one pulling the bag of another Nina? Que Horror!

  • I miss Malta.

  • Fr Longenecker

    Fr Gary, it's 'Senorita' Mantilla Amontillado. She's engaged to a matador named Augusto

  • It looks like after an FSSPX Mass!

  • hi miss crescat!! may i send you a mantilla photo from the philippines?

  • apparently the wearing of head gear does not necessarily equate with exercising all the virtues all the time

  • Those are some dirty looks the girls on the far right and far left are giving each other.

  • In Little Mantilla's defense, I think she was saying, "No, hon, you gotta get rid of that tacky faux leather purse! Just toss it done right here before it makes us all look bad!"

  • I think she got a little bit of spunk like that little girl, that Caitlin O'Rourke that write posts every now and then over there for Father L. Little Mantilla is too classy to be stickin' her tongue out like Caitlin, but she knows bad ecclesiastical haberdashery when she sees it, even on other little girls…..maybe she think that other little girl is trying to sneak some sinfully ugly polyester stole in to the priest to try to get him to wear something with rainbows and little children's handprints on it. Little Mantilla, saving the day, aspiring to her vocation!
