During Lent, especially on Good Friday, veiled statues in Catholic churches symbolize the mourning and reverence for the suffering and death of Jesus Christ. The practice of veiling statues is a tradition that helps Catholics focus on the solemnity and significance of the Lenten season, particularly during Holy Week leading up to Easter. By covering the statues, the Church emphasizes the sense of penance, reflection, and anticipation of Christ's resurrection. This symbolic act encourages worshippers to turn their hearts and minds towards prayer, repentance, and spiritual contemplation during this sacred time in the liturgical calendar.
