The Roman Breviary and Tradition teach that Pope St. Linus was “the first to govern the Church after Peter. His faith and holiness were
so great that he not only cast out demons but also called the dead back to life. He wrote the Acts of St. Peter, particularly what Peter had done against Simon the magician. He decreed that
no woman should go into a church without having her head veiled” (Matins, Sept 23).
This good Pope was only confirming what St. Paul taught the Corinthians: “every woman praying or prophesying with her head not covered,
disgraceth her head... let her cover her head” (11:5-6); and thereafter the same Apostle rhetorically asks: “doth it become a woman to pray unto God uncovered?”
Let us humble ourselves ...
and fulfill this precept!
