GUESS WHERE ELSE WOMEN WEARS VEILS?
A commenter responding to my Nancy Pelosi post got me wondering about this and, yes, it's true:
... [Mel Gibson] actually built a church called the Holy Family Chapel in the mountains of Los Angeles, near Malibu....
Members of the Holy Family are a very traditionalist bunch who reject the changes enacted by the Second Vatican Council of 1962-1965.... They insist that Latin be the only language spoken in the church, as it was in pre-Vatican II times. Women are required to wear hats or veils, and everyone is to fast on Fridays.
(The commenter, by the way, recently wore a veil to a funeral at an Opus Dei church, where the veil is requested, though not required.)
