Veils and an Advent Veiling Blog Link-up

Before Thanksgiving preparations for much of our extended family sweeps me away, I wanted to let you know about a wonderful cyberspace event in which I am participating. It's the Advent Veil Link-up and Giveaway and as the name implies, we'll be offering 1.) opportunities to read blog posts about veiling, 2.) a place for you to link your own veiling posts, and 3.) the chance to win one of several veils to be given away during Advent. This is your advance warning, so stay tuned and don't miss out!

As someone who hasn't been veiling that long, I've written about my discernment and research on starting this discipline, a veiling meditation using the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary, and a veiling update answering a few questions that arose from my first post. There was also a recent post entitled, Interior Disposition: Why Fix Your Hair, If You're Wearing a Veil?, which spotlighted how I feel about my motivation for veiling.

And in case you're wondering, my adult daughter and I are the only two ladies who veil at our small rural parish - except for the occasional visiting veiler. There's also a very informal and most unscientific poll being conducted by my dear husband, and loyal supporter. He travels for work frequently and always reports back to me about the veiling habits of parishes throughout the country. From his encounters and from what I read in the blogosphere, I have noted a slow, but consistent trend toward veiling all over the country.

So here we are, at the point of this post where I tell you a few details.

This is the veil being given away by Veil Designs by Birgit!

  • The Advent Veiling Link-up and Giveaway will begin on December 2nd, the first Monday of Advent.
  • So you don't have a lot of time to get busy and write your post so that you'll be ready when the linky goes live! This will be a fantastic opportunity to drive traffic to your blog as well as reading thoughts about veiling from others.
  • The time frame for the Advent Veil Giveaway will be announced soon and includes five veils to be given away throughout Advent.
  • Stay with us throughout the season of Advent for the opportunity to read more posts as they are linked up and to win veils as each participant holds her individual entry opportunity and random drawing.
