For right now I will be using my infinity scarf as my veil. (As I mentioned before the veil I do have just will not stay on my head, even with pins.) One of the biggest things I have learned since I began just last Sunday was I am getting stared at for wearing my scarf as a cover.
Mind you I am not feeling like it is distracting at all. I just feel they are either amazed, shocked, or just plain dumbfounded. In this diocese I have met so few women here who wear a covering let along a veil. (And it is not a law that you should.)
This past Sunday I was speaking to my husband who was in a way venting over the parish we go to. I then spoke about how he felt about me wearing a veil. He said he liked it, but also never noticed I had it on. It caused a discussing of why I love veils in a deeper way than they just feel right. (For they do, even if my veil right now is a scarf.)
I feel that wearing a covering or a veil is a great way for me to show my total submission to God’s Love. This might not be the true reasons behind the veils but for me that is what I contemplated (in the very noisy Church). I wear this as my external sign that I am submitting.
For many readers they would say submitting can be a bad thing. And yes, certain ways submission is completely bad or unhealthy for a person. But, are we not to be trusting towards God? So, why not express that not in just words, but through our actions and external selves, for we are body and soul, not just soul.
I cannot wait until this next coming Sunday. Anyone else participating in the Veil Project, if you are and you are on Twitter remember to tag: #VeilProject let this become the trend on Twitter.
