Mantilla
Question from Mandi on 2/12/2014:

I just received my mantilla, and it is absolutely beautiful. I am very nervous though and I have to ask: Where I live hardly anyone wears a mantilla to Mass. It is just that I am nervous because of no one else wearing the veil. I don't want to seem like I am wanting attention if I walk into Mass with the mantilla on. It is because I have God in my heart and I want to wear it out of a sign of respect for him. What should I do?

Answer by Catholic Answers on 2/13/2014:

Mandi--

Wear your mantilla and try to stop imagining what others will think. In all likelihood, they simply won't care what you are wearing on your head.
