Hello, I’m new here actually i made this acc just to ask this question
I only pray with a veil or hoodie to cover my head because of what the Apostle said and the Church Fathers. I didn’t have a veil but now i do, and i carry it around to pray.
I’ve had religious OCD last year, it was pretty strong, but thank God God healed me from it. Now i only have a very weak form of it, it is mainly “do this, if you dont it means X” or bad words/mean toughts.
Getting to the point: my mind or whatever keeps saying that if i don’t pray veiled in public that means I’m ashamed of God. I mainly avoid it because veil on head = muslim in peoples heads, and i don’t have a cross or rosary to put on my neck to shout “hey, not a muslim!”. I HAVE prayed veiled around people before!!! And felt no shame at all. But i keep having to do it again, and it tells me to do it again or it means I’m ashamed of Christ etc. I don’t want to be rejected by God in judgment’s day bc of something so petty, but i don’t want to give in to compultion either
A few months back it was “if you don’t make the sign of the cross it means you’re ashamed of God” then i did it and i did it and i did it and it and it weakenned a little i think because i stopped.
What do you guys think? I know it is really confused and small to be even thinking about it but it’s been bothering me.
