I do not wear a veil at Mass, it is not neccessary, I wore one when I went to the Vatican but that's a whole different issue.

First Vatican Council also points out that the Veil MUST be worn. Second Vatican didn't erase that; the main stream media did.

Joe -- You are questioning the canonicity of part of Corinthians?? Wow. Read some "good" books by Bart Ehrman or John Shelby Spong lately. Haha!

But even if Paul was not the specific author (which he is), Corinthians is still part of the Homologoumena, and as such, inspired and inerrant. It shocks me (although it should not) that women rebel against such a simple thing they are commanded to do. It reminds me of Naman the Leper getting upset at what Elisha commanded him to do to be cured, which was trivially easy. But, I suppose this is part of the punishment Eve is given in Genesis 3, in which she is told she will try to devour her husband (overthrow the God given authority of her husband), and he is punished by being told he will be a tyrant to her, rather than being patient and loving with her. Such is sin -- trying to destroy the Order of Creation.

I believe it is a nice custom. Still observed in Italy, many counties. Men must at Temple. Thank you Elizabeth!

There is some doubt among scholars as to whether Paul is really the author of those passages about women, as they don't seem to jibe with what he says elsewhere about the relative equality between women and men in the early Church.

Elizabeth, it was exactly an address to the Christians in Corinth against heresy in church discipline: [1st Corinthians 11] "Be ye followers of me, as I also am of Christ. Now I praise you, brethren, that in all things you are mindful of me: and keep my ordinances as I have delivered them to you." This church discipline necessarily flows from human nature as St. Paul makes clear: "But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God. Every man praying or prophesying with his head covered, disgraceth his head. But every woman praying or prophesying with her head not covered, disgraceth her head: for it is all one as if she were shaven. For if a woman be not covered, let her be shorn. But if it be a shame to a woman to be shorn or made bald, let her cover her head. The man indeed ought not to cover his head, because he is the image and glory of God; but the woman is the glory of the man. For the man is not of the woman, but the woman of the man. For the man was not created for the woman, but the woman for the man. Therefore ought the woman to have a power over her head, because of the angels. But yet neither is the man without the woman, nor the woman without the man, in the Lord. For as the woman is of the man, so also is the man by the woman: but all things of God. You yourselves judge: doth it become a woman, to pray unto God uncovered? Doth not even nature itself teach you, that a man indeed, if he nourish his hair, it is a shame unto him? But if a woman nourish her hair, it is a glory to her; for her hair is given to her for a covering. But if any man seem to be contentious, we have no such custom, nor the church of God."

St. Paul is clearly saying that women's hair being a covering in itself is not an Apostolic custom of the Catholic Church, that is, that veiling of women is part of intrinsic Sacred Tradition.
