From a readerette…
I have developed a love for veiling at the TLM, I attend a daily NO Mass and veil there too. My mom dislikes and does not allow me to veil when I attend the NO Mass with her. I was told that you are either supposed to always veil or never veil (outside of the TLM). Can I veil part time or what should I do?
First, I am glad that you are interested in covering your head while in church. This is a fine tradition, Bible-based and with a long history even in the law of the Church. That said, women no longer have an obligation under the Church’s canon law to cover their heads in church. You may cover or not as you wish.
As you wish… unless, of course, you are of an age that places you still under the authority of your parents. If you are young enough to be under their authority, then they can determine how you are to dress.
And yet, if you are going to daily Mass on your own, you may be out and on your own. If that is the case, do as you please. You have to decide how to keep the peace with your mother.
There is no requirement to cover your head always if you have done it once, to cover at the NO if you have done it at the TLM. Does that even sound right?
Full time or part time, it’s up to you.
