In the past, I've read with curiosity Alana's and Juliana's posts about head coverings.
On my lunch break today, I was reading about Mimi's retreat and ended up over on Xenia Kate's blog. Her post about her new snood reminded me of something my son said last week.
He was walking with his papa through the local university campus and saw a young arabic lady with a full headcovering. Little Builder pointed to her and said, "look, Papa! She looks like a saint!"
I don't wear a full-time headcovering or even wear one all that often to our new church. I did at our old one, because almost all the women did and we shared a meaning together. Almost no one does at our new parish, and since I feel separated instead of sharing together, I often don't wear one anymore. But there are times that I would like to... in and out of church.
I suppose that having my son look at me and think "saint" wouldn't be terrible! If only I could LIVE like one...
