Perusing the blogoshpere today I ran across this at Father Z’s Blog:
Ironically while I was on Twitter last night (trying to dull my senses to go to sleep I guess) I came across a conversation about veiling. The woman who was in the middle of the conversation wanted to wear a veil but was worried that it would put focus on her (OF Mass- no other females wearing veils) and would cause a problem. Since I “veil” I thought I would put in my 2 cents. Something kept me from jumping into the discussion and now I know it was the Holy Spirit.

A nice young lady sent me a note and link to a video.
“Dear Fr. Z,
I am entering my sophomore year at Christendom College, and I recently made an 8 minute video on the chapel veil to explain why women wear it and to encourage women to wear it. I think you would appreciate the content and the quality. If you like it, perhaps you can share it with the women who read your blog.”
If you can, I would appreciate any feedback.
I can pretty much guarantee some feedback. (Father’s response, my emphasis.)
Providentially, the answer was posted on FatherZ’s blog of course, and I am now posting it and sending it on to the woman on Twitter. There are several women interviewed and the issue of drawing attention to oneself is addressed…beautifully.
The quality of the video is excellent and those interviewed are a cross-section of women. (so it’s just not the EF women as most will argue is the reason the women have the veils on…ugh)
If you go to Father’s blog (HERE) you will see in the combox (you must register to comment like AlwaysCatholic) that there a couple of naysayers. Of course, the female naysayer is cranky and illogical per usual, but it appears she attends the EF. As I sat reading her ridiculous comment I could only shake my head. Im praying for her because I do not care if she attends the EF she sounds like a progressive from Madison, WI…and that AIN’T Good.
Father Zuhlsdorf gives gentle correction with his red pen and I’m sure she’s not too happy with that. (He was correct, however) Prayers for Cranky Non-Veiler please!
