The Chapel Veil: The Symbol of the Spouse of Christ - Sophia Institute Press

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.

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

    Very informative. Easy to understand. Shared with my husband. This has helped me to be able to better witness to my wearing the veil. I am surprised how some are misguided or misunderstand the meaning of the veil. You do a beautiful job with materials to educate. Thank you!

    I enjoyed this book and it offers a clear explanation that promotes wearing a chapel veil. I only wish a few more essays had been included.

    This booklet may seem a little pricey but it is the best of the best and worth every penny.

    We've begun sharing this with our fellow veil-wearing parishioners. The first one has already told us that they are ordering more to give to our parish leaders. This message needs to be incorporated into our Religious Ed program. Also ordered some of the veil clips. They are excellent and this is the only place where we were able to order them

    I loved ordering this along with my veils and furthering my understanding of this beautiful sacramental. Highly recommend for one getting started in veiling to deepen you devotion.

    The Chapel Veil

    Posted by Stephanie Ortiz on 8th Mar 2021

    This speaks to the human heart. This is the goal of every human soul ever created and will ever be created: to be the Bride of the Lamb. This is both for men and women, for women we have the pure gift to wear our wedding veil now on earth in the presence of the Lamb. Every time we go to mass we agree to the Lambs proposal of marriage and receive Him in the Eucharist. We can certainly meditate on this booklet the rest of our lives.
