Veiling the world over.

It is consoling to find  that the mantilla, or any head covering, is alive and well all over the world. Just as the Mass of Ages is timeless, so is covering one's head...the reverence and love for Our Lord remains brightly burning in many countries.

In the Russian Orthodox Church a lady lights a tapered candle wearing a patterned shawl over her head in reverence.

A Nigerian lady in a black veil holding her tiny baby- I love this devotional picture.

Two young ladies in a beautiful rose lace mantilla and a deep green one in no other than Baghdad! 

A young Korean Catholic lady in a pure white flowered mantilla.

Veiled appropriately at Holy Mass in Pakistan.

'Modesty in a women is a sign that Christ Jesus dwells in her heart. It is the 
sweet perfume of edification which she is called upon to diffuse.'


  1. Veiling is such a beautiful tradition. It really should be kept in high respect and should be encouraged!
    God bless you!

  2. Thank you so much, Kylie and God Bless you too.
