Una Voce Position Paper on Head Coverings at Mass

Joseph Shaw, President of the Latin Mass Society of England and Wales, has released today the latest Position Paper of the International Federation Una Voce, "Headcoverings in Church," a magnificent explanation and defense of the custom of women covering their heads in church (and, it seems one must add today, of men uncovering their heads in church). No matter where you stand on this custom, whether you are a strong proponent/practitioner of it, a disinterested observer, a mild skeptic, or a total negationist, I cannot recommend highly enough the reading of the short Position Paper, and, for those interested in pursuing the ramifications, Dr. Shaw's reflections at his blog.

All this, just in time for the upcoming "Wear the Veil Day," Monday, December 8th.
