Why the lace: didactic...
Once my own mother asked me why there is sometimes lace on a surplice. In fact, she's asked this same question more than once.
The answer is one word: "didactic." This is a word that every Catholic ought to know and understand. Look this word up in a dictionary, contemplate its meaning and explain it to your kids in reference to all things Catholic.
