Some beautiful lace mantillas from days past. It is lovely to think that the mantilla is alive and well in many traditions today, especially within the Traditional Latin Mass community. Veiling inside a Church where no one veils is also important as it shows people just how beautiful and humble a custom it is, and with prayers, they may follow this example of wearing a head covering to honour God.
