Dear Princess of God, veiling at mass may seem like a big step, especially if you are the only woman doing so. However, remembering that you are in the presence of countless angels adoring Christ who veil their faces before His Majesty, will give you courage and encouragement.
Besides, a Princess of God does not follow the crowd, but always does what is right and pleasing to God.
The Bible states in 1 Corinthians 11:5-6, “But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven. For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered.”
Furthermore, the Blessed Mother, who is the model for the Princess of God, is rarely seen with her head uncovered – she is nearly always veiled as a sign of purity, modesty, and humility. Dear Princess of God, you should be likewise.
Veiling shows to others that you are a virtuous and beautiful woman, and that your mind and heart are on the things of God and heaven, not the things of this world or earthly things.
A married woman should wear a darker colored veil, or black and an unmarried woman should wear a white veil while in church.
