Mantilla poll at WDTPRS


Fr Z has a mantilla poll - well actually they are usually called "chapel veils" in the US, I think. The poll asks: "Should women in the Latin Church wear some kind of head-cover in church?" and gives a number of possible responses. Go over and cast a vote: it would be interesting to see how this turns out with a reasonably large number of respondents.

If you want some background information, there is a lengthy post at the Catholic Knight: The Chapel Veil - Veiling or Head Covering - Fully Explained That article has this fascinating newspaper clipping:


Rev Bugnini no less! The clipping has no date but it refers to the Congregation for Divine Worship as "new." The CDW was erected on 8 May 1969.
