We are a bi-ritual family (I am Byzantine Catholic/Serbian Orthodox and she is Roman Catholic). In the United States most Eastern Catholics have to worship in a Roman Church and we are no exception. Cannon law clearly dileneates that in bi-ritual home, the “home” is techinally the rite of the husband. Eastern Catholics and Orthodox women are far more likely to wear head coverings. However I do not find it in the interest of marital harmony to require my wife to take on the eastern tradition. We do practice biblical submission/headship though, and if I told her I wanted her to wear a head covering in church she would. I wonder, what would be your argument for it?
I believe we need visible signs of invisible realities. It is a symbol of my husband’s headship as well as Christ’s. I go into more detail of why I veil in this post. I also linked some other resources about veiling in the post: https://mrsktc.wordpress.com/2014/03/15/veiling-resting-in-my-husbands-headship/
I will read further when I get a chance. I added you to the courtship pledge blog roll, by the way.
Thank you. I was very happy to find your courtship site!
