The Infanta Sofia First Holy Communion: May 2017

Los detalles de la Comunión de la Infanta Sofía

The communion will be held in the third week of May and will go ahead in the same way as it did with Leonor's communion 2 years ago.

The ceremony will probably take place at the church of Our Lady of Aravaca,where that of her older sister took place with limited family members as before.

As with Leonor, Sofia's First Communion will be at the local church and with school uniform. Plain and focused on the private rites to be received. As it's supposed to be.

According to the same newspaper, Infanta Sofia had her first confession before Holy Week.

In the case of Princess Leonor, there were images of King Felipe and Queen Letizia arriving at the school for the event. Not this time.

As quoted from fisheaters.com, "On a mundane, sociological level, a child's "First Communion" is a rite of passage, an acknowledgement that he has reached the age of reason and is now liable for many of the penalties involved in ecclesiastical censure; it is, in other words, a marker that the child is growing up... Gifts are given to the new communicant (typically Rosaries, prayer books, Bibles, etc.), and a party typically follows the Mass during which he first receives the Sacrament. These mundane aspects of a child's "First Communion" should never, ever overshadow the greater reality! In some parts of the world, a child's First Communion is turning into a lavish, extravagant, keeping-up-with-the-Joneses bat-mitzvah, with little girls, wearing dresses that cost hundreds and hundreds of dollars, carried about by limousine to parties with expensive ice sculptures and la-di-da waiters. It is disgusting! While a child's First Communion should be memorable and very beautiful, it should, above all, be holy and with all priorities in place."

Hopefully we'll get some nice photos of King Juan Carlos with his granddaughters.

We'll see if he shows up. In Leonor's case, he might have been there because he is her godfather, too.

I've never fully understood why in First Communion group portraits, the children have "prayer hands"; palms pressed together and held upwards just below the chin.

I see Sofia's godfather, Prince Konstantin of Bulgaria, is with the family. That is lovely, but I wonder where the school' rule of 6 relatives per kid was left

Another picture (poor king though ): https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DABShhwWsAEFhW-.jpg

And a video with the family posing for the photographers, with a quite rare talkative King JC

Her godmother is her grandmother Paloma Rocasolano.
