I am only 36, so have only ever known the New Order of Mass.
I am finding this forum very interesting, and have read quite a few links posted.
I found this footnote on the fisheater’s site …
*During the Second Vatican Council, Archbishop Bugnini – the Modernist who fabricated the Novus Ordo Mass – was asked by journalists whether women will still have to wear headcoverings. He told them that the Council wouldn’t be addressing that issue. And how did it come out in the newspapers the next day? The reporters wrote that Catholic women no longer have to wear veils. And so Catholic women stopped doing it – even though it had been the immemorial practice of the Church and a matter of Canon Law. When the new Code of Canon Law was written after so many years of women not veiling (and, of course, after feminism won the day), the discipline simply wasn’t mentioned.
These sorts of obfuscations, simple errors, or out and out lies happen all the time! Of this much I will assure you, Catholic: if you get your Catholic education from newspapers, you are doomed. You must learn to be able to recognize what is and is not an infallible statement, learn to recognize the different levels of the Magisterium, and then seek out official documents and attribute to them proper authoritativeness. If you don’t, you will be forever confused and forever wrong about what the Church teaches.*
Could somebody tell me please where in Scripture or our teachings it says women are to have their head covered?
I am not being facetious, but rather am very interested in why this was a rule once.
I would have no problem following this rule if it was re-introduced.
