Mantillas and Pascha

Alana, over at the Free To Cover blog, is hosting a give-away of two lovely white lace mantillas for Pascha.  I am one of those who often, but not always, feels the need to cover my head in prayer at home, and would certainly put a mantilla to good use.

Mantillas are something that you just never see here for sale, not even in the RC shops which stock first communion outfits etc.

Mantillas are lovely but not so practical for doing prostrations. Have a look at the head-coverings on this site

I bought the longer style called Suzanne in a plain dark cotton (you can choose your colour) and it stays put even on my fine slippy hair. It even has a narrow band of velvet ribbon in a contrasting colour stitched onto the inner front edge which helps to stop it slipping back.

I live in Australia and was pleased that it arrived so quickly and at a very reasonable cost. You might even try asking them to send it in time for you to wear at Pascha.

CG, many thanks for the link !

I liked several styles of head coverings that look lovely as well as practical.

I currently use a head scarf, and it does tend to slip/fall off with prostrations :-)
