CATHOLIC WOMEN: WOULD YOU WEAR A MANTILLA TO MASS?
I've been tossing around the idea for quite some time now. A veil/mantilla is so lovely and reverent, I wish we never stopped wearing them. When I was a little girl sometimes my grandmother used to "bobby pin" a tissue to my head, or a scrap of lace. Even then (circa 1968-69) veils were phasing out.
My feeling is that I would love to bring back this tradition - to express reverence. The mantillas of today are so pretty, they come in all colors and lengths. However, I'm worried that it would be too much of a distraction now - since it is not the norm. The last thing I want to do is to draw attention to myself, which would defeat the purpose of wearing a veil in the first place. Perhaps we could start a movement where we all begin wearing them again. What is your opinion?
