We sing the same antiphon at the veiling. In the Spanish and Italian monasteries the nun is prostrate during the singing and the younger nuns cover them with rose petals! [media]http://youtu.be/Kv0

Thank you emmaberry and chiquitunga for the congratulations! Emmaberry-my entrance date is march 19 (tentatively). The community is English-only, even though its roots are Mexican. Hope you have a

You're right gracian! Great observation! Personally, I love double grilles, but I'm weary about the spikes in the visiting parlor :unsure: seems like someone could easily get hurt if they trip and fall up against them, or someone bumps into them, as can happen when there are lots of people trying to greet the Sister like after a profession.

 

Seems like some of them were removed here at San Jose (go to 3:00, but also right in the beginning you can see the empty holes & at 2:00) although there may be a row on the bottom, can't tell.

Could someone please explain what is happening here & why she has a white veil over the black?

Here's the website: http://www.iglesiadeconcepcion.cl/jovenes/noticias.php?id=VerNoticia&id_noticia=1936


I'm going to hazard a guess. She's wearing the white veil of the temporary professed and the site says she was making her final vows. I'm guessing they changed the underveil before the ceremony just for ease. They would change the large veil after the actual profession was made, and the pictures just don't show that far into the ceremony.

What is embroidered on their scapulars?

I think the embroidered scapular belongs to an active order.  :)

Yes, that is most certainly what's happening here :like: Although I have never seen it done this way before, it makes some sense. The way I have always seen it is that the black veil is given during the ceremony and placed over the white. So there are some pictures at first of the newly professed with a white veil underneath. But then after the ceremony, she will change to a black day veil, and you'll see pictures of that as well like here, https://plus.google.com/photos/104536453016555060669/albums/5786200923789335441?banner=pwa

Usually, the Nun to be professed (Solemn Vow) wears white veil and will be given the huge black communion veil and not the other way around.  The Nun, moving forward will wear the black day veil and during liturgical celebration or when the mantle is worn, usually they put on an the large communion veil on top of the day veil.

 

However, there were photos of other Carmels that shows a Nun wearing black veil and a white veil is pinned on top and I dont know why.
