Modest in mantillas

When one veils there is a special yearning for reverence and humility. It shows an understanding of the virtue of modesty and respect in the presence of God. Seeing young ladies wearing mantillas is a real joy, especially in a world which is rife with impurity and immorality. Covering their heads and dressing in modest attire shows Our Lord that He is at the centre of their hearts.

A beautiful, black lace mantilla for a young lady.

Modestly fashionable in white.

I love the way this Russian girl has made her ivory mantilla her own by tying it around the base of her neck. 

A wonderful array of pure white lace with a pale pink and ebony mantilla...feminine beauty at its best.

Our young ladies will lead the Church into Her next generation - may they always remain virtuous, modest and faithful.

'How beautiful then is modesty and what a gem among virtues it is.'

St. Bernard of Clairvaux, Doctor of the Church

  1. I have noticed that if a girl or woman understands the reason for wearing a mantilla, she soon realises that modest dress is also important. Or if she is understands the reason for modest dress, she will sooner or later start wearing a mantilla!
