Wear a Veil to Mass Day on December 8th?
It's starting to gain traction on my newsfeed where it's mostly been puttering along. I'm glad to see the trend starting to blossom.
For those of you unfamiliar, the idea is as simple as it sounds. We are calling on women to don the veil for one day - the Feast of the Immaculate Conception - in order to raise awareness for this traditional (and oft-neglected) sacramental.
Yes! Sacramental! The chapel veil is an outward sign of an inward faith. Since women personify the sacred vocation of Mother Church as Bride to Christ, each time we wear a veil we act as living iconography. It's not a way for us to seem holier than the rest of the congregation; it's a way for us to embrace the place God created for us and the unique roles we play in His Family.
With that being said, how many of you are taking part? How many of you are discerning the call to veil?
I'd like to help you along. You guys know I've got a ton of veils (infinity, mantilla, tie-back, etc). I want to give three away to you!
To participate, leave a comment below stating your feelings on the veil and why you'd like to win one! I'd love to hear from folks who already veil. Leave your testimony as to how veiling has enriched your spiritual lives!
I will randomly select 3 winners on Sunday!
**Please note that this contest is over. I'll post the winners shortly!**
