Do You Veil at Mass? Or Considering It?

Go over to Veils by Lily and take a look at my mantillas! And if you know someone who veils, please spread the word! I'm offering free shipping on all mantillas until Friday.

If you're still on the fence about veiling at Mass, take a look at Will You Mantilla With Me? and their blog.

  1. Your veils are beautiful! I love your blog and am happy that I found it. To veil, or not to veil, is at my forethoughs I really appreciate the links!

  2. I am! Thanks for the link to your mantillas - they looks beautiful!

  3. I have been veiling since a little before I got married 8 months ago. I veil for a number of reasons not the least being that I remain a bride of the church and am special in Gods sight. Being so special to God I am for his eyes only in his sacred house. For me veiling is an extension of my modesty. Just as I wear clothes that do not show off my body in public; because, my body is meant for my husbands eyes only, I veil to obscure view of my face from everyone but my Lord. Despite what the feminists would have you believe, veiling is not a way to suppress women. In fact as Alice von Hildebrand reminds us, sacred things such as the Ark of the Covenant, the Eucharist when in the tabernacle and the chalice are all veiled. Why then would a woman be diminished by veiling? I believe just the opposite is true. By veiling in the presence of our Lord, a women is acknowledging that she realizes her place in God's holy plan and the sanctity of that place.

  4. This time last year I was veiling for mass. I found "sneaky" ways to do it without people asking me why I had my head with thick headbands or gauzy scarves. And after a few months at college I stopped. I really want to start again...I'll definitely check out the links! Thanks!!

  6. I think woman should wear a covering at all times. maybe not to sleep though.
    it says in the bible we should pray without
    ceasing. Does anybody agree with this?

    1. I don't think so, we are not Muslims

  7. I have seen some women wear it at my Church, its wonderful and I think if you feel that you need to cover your hair then do it....Praise the Lord Christ...
