If you're like me and were left with a bad taste in your mouth from the events of the past few days, you're going to LOVE the real origin of "Wear the Veil" Day. This morning I spoke with Tina Witt of Charlotte, North Carolina, and she filled me in on the lovely details.
It all started a few years ago with an idea by Andrea Hines, also of Charlotte. She and Tina started an apostolate called "Our Lady of the Veil" to encourage women to take up the veil once again and promote the true Christian virtues of obedience, humility, and modesty.
Andrea and Tina thought the solemnity of the Immaculate Conception would be a great time for women who had been considering it, to start wearing a veil, so they started promoting it as "Wear the Veil" Day. As you have probably been able to see, the campaign has become increasingly popular.
Visit their website here.
If you have not already done so, I encourage you to visit our information page and share it widely! Invite your Catholic girlfriends to start veiling with you at Holy Mass on December 8, a Holy Day of Obligation, because the more women that do this, the less you will stand out and the easier it will be.
Wear your veil and help the Church return to proper reverence for the Holy Eucharist, which is none other than Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God!
