Young women wearing mantillas Young women wearing mantillas

Chapel veils, or mantillas (which comes from the word manta, meaning cape) are typically circular or triangular shaped pieces of black or white lace that are draped over a woman’s head when attending Mass, or in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament. Traditionally, the black veils were worn by married or widowed women, while the white veils were worn by young girls, or unmarried women, but there are no hard and fast rules about this.

“Therefore ought the woman to have a power over her head, because of the angels.” (1 Corinthians 11:10)

St. Paul reminds us that as Christ did the will, and sought the honour of God the Father, so the Christian should avow his subjection to Christ, doing His will and seeking His glory. We should seek a fitting demeanour in our dress and habit, avoiding everything that may be dishonourable before…

The Incarnation & Protestants

Here is a powerful video by renowned Catholic apologist Michael Voris on the Incarnation of Christ Jesus and it’s relationship with the Mystery of the Eucharist. The video also highlights the differences between Protestants and Catholics and emphasises the historic and patristic reality of the belief in the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist that was faithfully held onto by the early Christians. Our brothers and sisters in the Faith defended this belief with their lives and for good reason.

Let us pray to our Lord for wisdom so that we may continue to walk with Him and not fall away from Him like the people in the Gospel of John who said: “How can this man give us his flesh to eat?” and to this Jesus said: ““Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life within you.  He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day. For My flesh is true food, and My blood is true drink. He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him.  As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who eats Me, he also will live because of Me.  This is the bread which came down out of heaven; not as the fathers ate and died; he who eats this bread will live forever.”

Here is a beautiful quote by the great saint and early Christian martyr Saint Ignatius of Antioch on our life in Christ and the fruits of a person who is united to Him in all things.

Enlarging the Heart

Ignatius_of_AntiochTake heed, then, often to come together to give thanks to God, and show forth His praise.

For when ye assemble frequently in the same place, the powers of Satan are destroyed, and the destruction at which he aims is prevented by the unity of your faith.

Nothing is more precious than peace, by which all war, both in heaven and earth, is brought to an end.

None of these things is hid from you, if ye perfectly possess that faith and love towards Christ Jesus which are the beginning and the end of life.

For the beginning is faith, and the end is love. Now these two. being inseparably connected together, are of God, while all other things which are requisite for a holy life follow after them.

No man truly making a profession of faith sins; nor does he that possesses love hate any one.

The tree is…
