Video of the Week/Mantillas
Notice at 7:00 St. Mary Magdalen pulls her *veil* on. No, I did not notice that, someone just mentioned that to my mom the other day.
We started wearing chapel veils/mantillas to mass (the same sacrifice as that of the Cross) about three years ago when we visited the OLAM Shrine in Alabama. A priest friend of ours was in the gift shop and gave my mom money to buy one. Yet, my mom was hesitant. She asked why we should wear it and he said "I wear my collar."
Ever since then, we've been wearing the veils as a sign of respect - and penance. We're sometimes the "odd balls" but, we offer it up!

Note: I will not be posting any "Video of the Week"s during Lent.
