St. Michael Prayer

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do, thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the Power of God, cast into hell satan and all of the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

Glory to God in the Highest!

I'm Taking the Veil!

Of course, 
that veil has to be pink!

I've decided that during the season of Lent,
I will use a chapel veil in Church.

Believe me,
this takes me back to pre-Vatican 2 years.
It was during this time that all women wore head coverings when at church.

A woman could wear a hat, a veil, or a small chapel veil.

It seems that the older I get, the more I long for the older ways.  






Whether I practice this 
devotional of wearing  a veil, 
beyond the season of Lent 
depends on whether I am able to grow spiritually by wearing the veil.

I long for fewer distractions.
I long to be closer to God.
I long to embrace my faith as I never have before.

I don't know what will happen, but for now
I'm Taking the Veil!

    1. Vacross, I made the veil. There are some that you can buy on Etsy. Just enter "chapel veils" into the search function. I didn't find pink, but I did find other colors. This is easy to make. Just use 3/4-1 yard. I think 3/4 yard works well. Sew a seam so that you have a tube. Use the straight edge of the fabric to sew the tube. Turn the lace over and sew a french seam which is sewing over the other seam. You're finished. Easy Peasy.

  4. Vickie, I went to both Hobby Lobby and Hancock Fabrics. I found the pink lace at Hancock's. You only need a half a yard. I thought you needed more, but I measured mine today, and it was a half yard. I think any fabric store would have lace, but if you want a specific color, you might have to shop around. I think JoAnn's would have lace, too.
