And someone better tell the Charlene thread that she didn't take communion so it looks like she's Protestant again (sigh), of course neither did Caroline which surprised me.
Thats her own business,I doubt God has time to worry

I'm RC & don't always take Communion.

Couldn't agree more..

As for communion, I'm also RC, and don't take it always, it depends on your last confession..

I'm sorry but since when?? people RC having sexual relations before marriage are forbidden from communion???!!!
And what is this comment about Caroline? She is RC too, she has always been. Only the high ecclesiastic authorities can decide who is forbidden from communion! and for reasons more serious that having a boyfriend!

These pics remind me how many times we have seen Caroline mourning! God!

Caroline didn't have a Catholic Wedding with Ernst, so it's understandable

http://i56.tinypic.com/w98bcg.png

Could someone tell me who is who in this photo? (I suppose there are the closest relatives of the late Princess)

I only guess that the "tanned" woman is Cecile, (daughter-in-law of the late Princess) - born in Gwadelupe, but what about the rest?

Beautiful mass, and the tribute of Melanie quite touching (she is very similar to Charlotte, have you noticed?)

I was suprised that to the Princely family Communion was being given "on hand" and to the others "to the mouth". Why?

To Princess Caroline,
I followed the whole funerals of your Aunt Princess Antoinette and with Her the generation of your beloved parents passed away.
I saw you for the fourth time in deep sorrow and black lace mantilla.
The first time for your mother HSH Princess Grace but you shared the sorrow of your father;
The second time for your young husband's funerals , your father shared your sorrow.
The third time for your beloved father HSH Prince Rainier of Monaco and at the same time your husband struggled for his life in a hospital.
And now for the fourth time for your Aunt Princess Antoinette who shared all your sorrows and you were alone but you have 4 loving children.
In July , you will be like your late Aunt the sister-in-law of the Princess of Monaco and you wll be also Monaco's second lady.
May God bless You

I thought it was a beautiful service. Didn't catch it from quite the begining but it seemed very fitting to me. I wonder if everyone in Monaco will put black ribbons on their pets today? That's not me trying to be humorous but I think the Princess would be touched by something like that. May she rest in peace.

Of course Princess Caroline is Catholic, I just don't know of any reason why she would not take communion -I thought she usually did. Anyone in a state of mortal sin is not supposed to take communion and unless there has been a *major* change since I was in catechism, any sex outside of marriage is a mortal sin. Sorry, I don't make these rules. A little calm please.

I only saw Caroline taking communion, it was at the funeral of her father, at the other fests, national fest, she never took the communion, but it is his own concience, we must respect her choice. The service was very beautiful and dignified, Melanie had a very moving priere and there were many songs that Princess Antoinette liked.

If the "rule" you say as applied... churches should be empty.

But we are out of topic. The topic is Pcs Antoinette, and agree that the Monaco family should feel loosing their "last" parent.

Very true, which is probably why most of this stuff is 'winked at' nowadays.

That is my understanding too. No matter how commonplace it has become, the Church AND the Scriptures for that matter teach that sex outside of marriage is a mortal sin. It has always been that way from the time of the Apostles, and it probably always will.

Don't get mad at the Catholic Church. Get angry with Jesus and His Apostles!

But I agree with the poster who said Caroline and other Catholics are to act according to the their respective consciences.

BTW...has anyone seen any photos of Baron Christian de Massy, Antoinette's black sheep son? He was banned from Grace's funeral by Rainier.

Charlene looks particularly solemn...even more so than Albert and his sisters!

Elisabeth-Anne looked the most outwardly distressed to me, I really feel sorry for her (and the others of course). I am SO glad the family got over their past problems and can comfort each other at a time like this.

They(the Grimaldis)really are a beautiful family physically. Not a homely one in the bunch....it's amazing to see them all together in full effect!
