Veils by Lily is a family apostolate whose mission is to reignite in our hearts the faith, awe, and wonder of the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist. We invite women to proclaim their faith in the Real Presence by making an external sign of their interior desire to humble themselves before God, truly present in the Blessed Sacrament.
We veil as a sign of humility before God, and we do it anytime we find ourselves inside a Catholic church, where the Blessed Sacrament is reserved in the tabernacle.
If you are thinking about beginning this beautiful devotion, remember that it is God before whom you wish to humble yourself. Like a religious habit, your veil is a public proclamation of your desire to submit to the will of God for your life, and of your commitment to answering the universal call to holiness and continual conversion. Your veil is also a sign of the great dignity inherent to a woman, who has the potential to receive life within herself... both human life and the supernatural life of God. This is an important message the world needs to hear, now more than ever!
I am a stay-at-home mother of five (ages 8, 6, 4, 1 and 6 months) with a special love for veiling in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament. Three years ago, I started making veils to encourage other women take up this beautiful tradition as a sign of love for Jesus, of confidence in Him, and of submission His holy will.
