Women and Veils in Church

My wife has contemplated wearing a veil at Mass. The spiritualness, reverence surrounding the practice has attracted her. My thoughts are that it's no longer mandatory, but voluntary.

I saw this article and I'm going to point it out my Honey.

Card. Burke on women covering their heads in church

 The great Canonical Defender, Dr. Ed Peters has an interesting note on the use… here we go again… about women wearing head coverings in church.

He has something from Cardinal Burke in the topic.
But first, in a nutshell here is the truth: In the Latin Church women are not bound by the Church’s positive law to wear head coverings in church.  If they want to, they can.  Period.  Not much more to say.
