More On Veils

I've received several inquiries lately about my relatively recent habit of wearing a veil during Mass and in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament.  I highly recommend wearing a veil, which I believe should be done voluntarily out of love, humility, and reverence for the Eucharistic presence of Jesus (and no, that doesn't mean I think that if you don't veil that you don't love and reverence Our Lord in the Eucharist).

For thought, I offer the words of Dr. Alice Von Hildrebrand:

“… feminists after Vatican II suddenly ‘discovered’ that when women go to Church veiled, it is a sign of their inferiority…My goodness, how they have lost the sense of the supernatural.  Veiling indicates sacredness and it is a special privilege of the woman that she enters church veiled.”

So, in addition to my previous blog posts (cited below), here are a few other links to a few more well-said thoughts on women wearing veils.  If you have any other edifying and spiritually nourishing links you wish to share, please let me know in the comments and I'll be glad to post those, too.
