The Chapel Veil: Symbol of the Spouse of Christ (Booklet)

Fifty years ago almost every Catholic woman and girl owned a chapel veil. Yet with their disappearance the Church lost a lovely symbol for womanhood. Elizabeth Black and Emily Sparks explain the theology, history, tradition and symbolism of the chapel veil and give today’s Catholic woman a reason to wear one once again.

The two essays contained in this booklet get to the very root of the meaning of the veil. This prayerful, in-depth explanation of the symbolism behind the chapel veil portrays the theology of the veil in such a clear yet breathtakingly beautiful way that it has the potential to renew our devotion for the Eucharist, our awe at the intimacy of the love of God, and our resolve to honor God in any way we can.

    Would recommend to anyone-Including men

    This is very well written. It's brief. You can read it in about 30 minutes. It does a beautiful job of explaining the history, symbolism, and devotion of veiling. I would recommend this book to anyone, even those who prayerfully decide veiling isn't for them, or for men. It's a wonderful explanation for improving understanding and acceptance for those who do veil.

    Good start

    Posted by Jeanine on 21st Sep 2018

    This is a good start on why women should/do wear a chapel veil, but at only 20 pages, it's expensive.

    REPLY: Jeanine, thank you for your feedback. The price is set by the publisher, an independent printer of books which include many out-of-print titles.
