The more I read this passage, the more I like it.
It's a really good question Patricius. I posted some pictures of churches in Cork (Ireland) that were veiling images last year both those using the EF and those that were not. Now I noticed the same in Dublin when I was up last a few days ago. Interesting, no?
"Veilimg" has a lot of resonances at the moment and I wondered how my quotation would be understood! I will come clean.Passiontide veiling: I am all for it and glad to see its return.Veiling of women's faces in public places: I'm against it. I love the passage from St Paul: Among other things it suggests that, as Christians, we should be "open", honest and "up front"!
