The Veil Removed

Play The Film

What is the Veil Removed?

The Veil Removed is a short film that reveals the coming together of heaven and earth at Mass, as seen by saints and mystics, revealed by scripture and in the catechism of the Catholic Church.

Our Mission

To increase participation and understanding of the Eucharist by igniting amazement through the miraculous beauty of the Catholic Mass.

Did You Know?

The Catechism of the Catholic Mass says that …

Our deceased loved ones, saints and angels join us at Mass.

By receiving Christ, we become connected to the Mystical Body of Christ as well.

Our Inspiration

“From its inception, this project has been led by the Holy Spirit.”

While researching about how Heaven and Earth come together during the Mass for their radio show Catholic Women Now, hosts, Chris Magruder and Julie Nelson, came across information revealing several saints who experienced heavenly visions during the Mass.

After presenting a radio segment on “How Heaven and Earth come together during the Mass,” Chris attended Mass. During the transubstantiation, Chris felt the Lord calling her to “show the world” what they would see during every Mass, if the veil was removed.” Following Mass, the excitement of this potential project began to reveal itself. And so “The Veil Removed” began.

“The Veil Removed” Board of Directors and Team came together alongside a strong group of 65 prayer warriors. The project is being prayed for every hour of every day, of every week, going on five years now. From its inception, this project has been led by the Holy Spirit. He continues to guide us every step of the way, through Mass, Adoration and daily prayer.

Why are you excited to be part of The Veil Removed?

Because of this little film, I think people are going to find out something different, something beautiful, something true and their faith is going to come alive.

Did You Know?

We are truly blessed to have the real presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. It is truly the living body, blood, soul and divinity of Jesus. My hope and my prayer is that you will experience that truth, not just as an idea but as a reality in your everyday life.

How has The Veil Removed changed your life?

To truly understand what is happening in the Mass, it’s changed my life.

What excites you about TVR?

I genuinely believe if we understood better what was happening at a single Mass, the world would be transformed, the whole Church would change from the inside out.

What is your Mass experience like now after The Veil Removed?

I experience such wonder and awe at every single Mass.

Mass is More Meaningful

The Veil Removed has improved my Mass experience.
