I’m receiving Baptism, Comfirmation, and First Communion this Saturday. : )
The question I have is; can a women wear a chapel veil when recieving the sacrament of comfirmation? The priest that is comfirming me said I am not allowed to wear a veil during the comfirmation and recommended that I did not wear one at all because it would make me ‘stand out’.
By no means am I trying to talk negative about this priest. He is a very kind man and I’m very thankful he allowed me into his RCIA. (I attend a different parish) I prefer a traditional catholic lifestyle… Chapel veils, kneeling for communion, and the like. I know that this priest prefers things a bit more modern. Is he right in telling me I can not wear my veil?
Is there any canon law, dogma, scripture, or what have you that helps shows that he is correct or incorrect? I would like to wear my veil, but I would hate to question his instructions on not allowing me to wear it if I’m the one in the wrong. Any advice would be helpful.
