Covering the head...
Fr. Z. has a post about women covering their heads at church. This is something I have thought a lot about in recent years. I was happy to see that a great number of women are in favor of covering their heads. Maybe that is an artifact of the demographic of his readers. I don't know.
Two or three years ago, I bought the above mantilla to wear to mass. I wore it a few times. I felt like I was being a show-off. Like "look at me! I am SO holy!" so I stopped wearing it.
I wish we all wore them.
I grew up wearing a veil and I miss it. When you put on your veil, you knew you were in a "different" place. In the presence of God. A place set apart. And you behaved accordingly.
