Women who cover their heads in His presence...


Isn’t catholicity rich? These lovely Catholic ladies say a thousand words with their veils, namely, to the enemies of Catholic culture: “Farewell, auf wiedersehn, adieu, adieu, adieu to yieu and yieu and yieu…”

Last night, while smoking my King Edward (VII) Specials (from T.K.) and enjoying my Coke and grenadine (Rose’s – by appointment to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II), I found myself contemplating these sweet girls and wishing I could marry one of them…

“Moreover, let all the women have their heads veiled with a scarf but not with a veil of linen only, for that is not a sufficient covering.”
St. Hippolytus: The Apostolic Tradition, 18. (3rd cent.)

Glad to know you're enjoying the cheapies (despite the fact that they are 60% paper).

Are there any places in Rome where a lady can obtain quality veils/mantillas?

i sigari americani were great and many thanks again (i used to smoke them in high school why trying to be cool).

in the rome of today you can't get a mantilla of quality anywhere. if you want one, but one made in spain, sold on the internet.
