Since becoming Catholic last year, I have felt strongly pulled to the more traditional practices of the Church. One of those being the wearing of a mantilla as a reminder that God is over us. I find it helps me to stay focused on the Liturgy as well as reminding me of God's presence (as if the great big Tabernacle doesn't ;)). One day a few weeks ago, as I'm entering the Church, the greater stopped me and told me "when you put your mantilla on, you look just like the Blessed Mother. You're beautiful." It was the first response I've had regarding the mantilla and it was one of the most touching things I've ever been told. It brought tears to my eyes.
