Are Veils For Women Still Required?

Of course not, right? I didn't think so, but this post (At St. Louis Catholic) makes me wonder if I really know what I think I know. Even Patrick Madrid says "Hey he might have a point!"

When the Church expects women to wear veils, I suspect she'll let them know.

I am inconsistent wearing the veil, I admit, even at the EF. But I thought to myself one day at an OF Mass at my children's school, which is run by a great group of sisters, that it should be easy to renew the custom by having the girls at school wear their mantillas or chapel caps. In our diocese the school kids go to Mass every day and it would soon, I think, become a habit.

Also, while some may find women's hair a temptation (huh?), it is often a matter of pride for women--they have it done, or spend a considerable amount of time blowing it dry, curling, cutting, coloring, etc. It seems that this is a matter of humility as much as temptation.
