The Chapel Veil- explained

I came across this wonderful blog which discusses Catholic Veiling. This article has "clenched the deal" in me veiling. I have been contemplating veiling for a few years.

God Bless,

Those who serve God should not follow the fashions

I came across a free booklet called,"Those who serve God should not follow the fashions" on PDF.
This could be really helpful for a lot of people. The book was written by Robert T. Heart

Head Coverings in Church

From Colin B Donovan, STL on EWTN. It talks about Canon Law and Moral Law and wearing a head covering today!

God Bless,

The Law of the Veil of 1 Corinthians 11


I came across this thesis, while I was searching the net for information on covering a woman's head in Mass. Christopher Vigil quotes from The Early Church Fathers, Servant of God Bishop Fulton Sheen and Dr Alice Von Hilderbrand. It is definitely worth the read if considering wearing a mantilla.

God Bless,

Marylike Standards


"A dress cannot be called decent which is cut deeper than two fingers breadth under the pit of the throat; which does not cover the arms at least to the elbows; and scarcely reaches a bit beyond the knees. Furthermore, dresses of transparent materials are improper."


1. Marylike is modest without compromise, "like Mary," Christ's Mother.
2. Marylike dresses have sleeves extending at least to the elbows; and skirts reaching below the knees.
[Note: Because of market conditions, quarter-length sleeves are temporarily tolerated with Ecclesiastical Approval, until Christian womanhood again turns to Mary as the model of modesty in dressing.]

3. Marylike dresses require full coverage for the bodice, chest, shoulders, and back; except for a cut-out about the neck not exceeding two inches below the neckline in front and back,
and a corresponding two inches on the shoulders.

4. Marylike dresses do not admit as modest coverage transparent fabrics, laces, nets, organdy, nylons, etc. ------ unless sufficient backing is added. However, their moderate
use as trimmings is acceptable.
5. Marylike dresses avoid the improper use of flesh-colored fabrics.
6. Marylike dresses conceal rather than reveal the figure of the wearer; they do not emphasize, unduly, parts of the body.
7. Marylike dresses provide full coverage, even after jacket, cape or stole are removed.

"Marylike" fashions are designed to conceal as much of the body as possible: This automatically eliminates such fashions as tight slacks, jeans, sweaters; shorts which do not reach down to the knees; sheer blouses and sleeveless dresses, etc. The Marylike standards are a guide to instill a "sense of modesty." A girl who follows these, and looks up to Mary as her ideal and model, will have no problem with modesty in dress. She will not be an occasion of sin or source of embarrassment or shame to others.


Welcome to Modesty at Mass!

Very few young adults and children are being taught about Modesty in general, let alone at Mass! When we participate in the Mass we are receiving Jesus Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity. If we truly believe that Jesus is really present in the Eucharist, how is it possible that we can wear casual clothing and immodest attire?
The purpose of this blog is for the majority of Catholics to re-evaluate what they are wearing to Mass, and try to instruct the ignorant (I used to be one of them).

A few days ago we made this video on Catholic Modesty and uploaded it to Youtube. Simply click on the link below to watch!
