Just to add some variety, [url="http://www.mepkinabbey.org/join_us/observers.php"]HERE[/url] you can see the postulant attire and the Novice habit of the Trappists in Mepkin Abbey.

I quite like veils too, but I can understand why many orders, including the one I'm joining, don't include that in their postulant uniform.

One of you commented earlier that a particular veil was 'still nun-like but obviously postulanty' or something to that effect. It is important to remember that the Canonical status of a postulant is layperson! A postulant is not a religious sister yet, even if they are trying out the life. So yeh - for the orders that don't give veils to postulants, perhaps that practice is part of ensuring that this point is understood.

Mind you, I'm very glad they have us cover our heads with a chapel veil. Its a nice way of easing into the veil.

haha i guess half the reason i like postulant outfits with veils is because i love veils and i want to wear one as soon as possible lol

and the veil even of professed sisters isn't blessed anyway, so I think by just not giving them the scapular and having them wear a different veil that the difference is understood. just my opinion. but yah i can see why some orders dont give postulants veils.

ETA what order are you joining? Edited by Little Flower

I'm sure in some communities you are right that professed sisters veils aren't blessed - but in my community our veils are blessed. I really never even gave a thought to the fact that they might not be in other communities.

haha... no, that is the way we do it too... but the veil is included. There is a distinct and special blessing for our crucifix, veil, and habit. The intention covers the others. I can only imagine the chaos if each habit of every person was physically present... there wouldn't be enough room for the people.

Hmmmm don't know if I have ever seen a postulant pic for the Sisters of Life. Aren't they just blue vests and jumpers like the DSMMEs?

Hey! my friend's twin sister's one of the postulants. Does anyone know when they're being invested?

If you look around the Cleveland website, you can find a few, but most aren't very good pictures of what they wear.

It looks similar to the Rockford Poor Clares', though

I'm rather fond of the Lockport Dominicans' and the PCCs in Rockford:

[/center]And here it is real life! They did such a wonderful job trying to be true to her life in that movie. Most of it was filmed on location too, like the different homes she lived in with her family .. and the actual monastery she was in, which is now a museum .. pictures [url="http://www.panoramio.com/photo/4440942"]here[/url] and [url="http://www.fotolog.com/losandes_chile/48770049"]here[/url] and a [url="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kJsbVBB_EJo"]little tour[/url] of it on youtube (not the best quality, but very neat to see!)
