Why Do Some Christian Women Wear Headcoverings?

The Following is a post from the Liturgical Time blog:

From The Liturgical Time Blog:
I have been asked about veiling/headcovering in worship.  To be honest, I have avoided this topic, because it is extremely important to me that this blog not become a forum for debate.  However, I do want to answer honest questions.

I will prepare my own testimony/explanation of veiling in church, but for now, I have selected some links of other women's testimonies of headcovering.  I have purposely selected links that detail personal experiences, written by the woman herself, and give her own reasons, rather than arguments regarding what others should do.

Roman Catholic: Why Do Catholic Women Wear the Mantilla?
Protestant: Why I Wear A Headcovering: A Christian Woman's Perspective
Orthodox Christian:  On Account of the Angels: Why I Cover My Head

I am interested in knowing if readers would like to hear more on this topic. I am not at all interested in Christian women (especially silly old me), telling other Christian women what they (in the speakers opinion) ought to be doing.  I do, however, believe that veiling is a beautiful tradition that is a blessing to many Christian women.  Comments below regarding reader interest (or lack of interest) in posts regarding headcovering, would be greatly appreciated, and would be useful to me, in deciding whether to take it up as a topic on this blog.

Pax Christi,
