the picture of perfection...

... Padre Pio and ladies in mantillas.

A stigmata can move people to conversion. Wouldn't it be nice if something like this happens here and Congress gets converted and repeals Obama. Then the SCOTUS reverses Roe. It can happen as greater things had e.g. the conversion of Russia. Bottom line is we all need to strive after holiness first then try to change the Democrats.

I meant repeal Obamacare. Then again, I take it back after recalling how the Lord taught that some people will never believe even if someone comes back from the grave. So, a few wounds won't soften the hearts of these pro-aborts.

Does this mean you've started wearing a mantilla?

(I thought awhile ago you posted you weren't ready for that yet....but it could have been another blogger)

The Crescat said...

No, I'm not comfortable in a mantilla.

I love this photo.

He looks like a real sweatheart. Having seen him in other photos smile or laugh, it's another little window in his everyday.

I wear mantillas. And I've always admired St. Pio.

CM said...

I'm not comfortable in my mantilla either. But I wear it.

Oh and I added a little comb to the front of my longer mantilla; sewn in underneath, and it helps me be able to look up without the whole thing sliding back down around my shoulders. Handy.

Kat, ask some advice from Fr. Dwight's friend Mantilla Amontillado. She is the founder of Veritas Vestments. She holds a degree in Ecclesiastical Haberdashery from Salamanca University.

I have this hope: that one of these days women will wear the veil again.

TCN said...

Women are beginning to wear the veil again. Me, for one, and now I've seen several more, particularly after Father put in the kneelers for communion.

We don't need to sneak around anymore. The veil shows our love for Our Lord. Simple as that.

I use bobby pins, myself. ;)

At my parish which has many Palestinian Christians, only the converts wear head coverings. The Middle Eastern women refuse, saying that they are NOT Muslims.
