I just bought this


I like to keep a small notebook in my purse for grocery lists, sins to confess, phone numbers, project plans, ect. I just bought this one and it's adorable. Plus, since I have about ten mantillas in my collection it made me laugh. You can order one here.

I so wish women in my parish wore veils...I would love to but lack the courage. I could hardly imagine a thing that would bring down more persecution on my head, or perhaps these are my cowardly fears. They are so beautiful and seem to be a great aid to reverence. I'm forever sad that women cast off these beautiful adornments.

When I first starting wearing the veil I got a LOT of hostile stares. Then I got creative. My hair is black so I only bought sheer black veils that blended in. In the last year or so up to 8 young women are wearing veils at my parish now and since even the ladies who used to frown and stare are used to me now I've picked up a couple of white and light blue veils.

I got a bumper sticker from there for my van and unfortunately, bought a cheap magnet backing and not I can't use it :( Right now I am praying for the courage to wear my veil to my sons first communion in the parish he attends school. No one wears veils there. I may chicken out and wear a hat because the air over there is thick with discord between the orthodox and the liberals.
