Paula's Veiling Journey

“Last year, I fell back in love with our Lord.

About 4 years ago, I was at a youth camp and saw one of the leaders wearing a veil and instantly became drawn. I didn’t end up pursuing veiling at the time as I hadn’t ‘stood firm in my faith.’

I come from a family with a very strong Catholic faith. It is what binds us together as a family. However, I began dating a non-Catholic man and completely derailed my faith, distancing myself from God. Far in that journey, I eventually learned that my love for my family and God was more important than my worldly desires. God removed him from my life and embraced me back into His arms. Before I knew it, I was praying the rosary every night and wanted to follow in our Mother Mary’s footsteps. I was then suggested veiling Instagram pages and instantly felt warm in my chest, bringing me back to the first time I saw my veiled youth leader. I knew then, God placed something special in my heart - veiling. It was the next step to my restoration of faith.

Veiling reminds me to stay humble and to “stand firm in the faith”. It brings me joy that is indescribable and I am so grateful that I get to experience this in my journey.

Hail Mary, Glory be to God in the highest! 🤍”
