Veils--Fashion only

Please, no one highjack this thread and start talking about canon laws, or the powers that be (mods), will probably have to lock this thread up, too. :frowning:

I just want to talk about fashion here. Read: this is supposed to be a fun again, fun thread.:thumbsup:

Lizaanne, thanks for the sewing ideas…in the end, I didn’t think I’d have time just now (too much else to do), so I went ahead and ordered some veils from They were so pretty that I couldn’t resist. I got a black one, medium size for myself, and a ivory color, also medium for my oldest daughter:

And three little “cap” style veils in white for the little girls:

ElizabethPH, thanks for the nice link. Cute, cute, cute.
Pax Christi,

I don’t wear a veil for fashion. I wear it as a sign of modesty and respect for our Lord and the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

11 pages of styles offered here.

They are lovely–thanks for posting. :slight_smile:

Modesty and respect for our Lord are two very good reasons for a veil. But…Yeah. Well. I’ve been on two different forums and both threads (dealing with the topic at hand), mine and someone else’s were shut down because people started talking cannon code. So shoot me for for the dumb title for my thread.:o

So perhaps I could’ve phrased it better?

"Veils–Respect fopr our Lord, modesty only. "

Maybe. Sorry. I just wan’t a veil thread that wouldn’t get locked.:shrug: But they are pretty, no way of getting around that, unless you wear burlap on your head. And why shouldn’t they be? Veils are part of an image of the Church as the bride of Christ.

Thanks, Forest-Pine. Veils are beautiful, aren’t they? I’ll look at the link later, when my children aren’t creating madness and mayhem in my husband’s office. :eek: I think it’s bedtime!!!
Pax Christi,
