The Minister is wearing a Black Veil and nobody knows why. He gives a sermon on secret sins. He wears the veil to a funeral and ends up creating supernatural speculations about him. he then wears it to a wedding and the bride and groom see it as evil
Everyone is making assumptions about why he is wearing the black veil but nobody has the courage to ask except his fiance Elizabeth she then asks him to take it off but he says its a symbol. she leaves him. he then wears it for years and ends up being a comfort to people through it
The minister is on his heath bead hut Hooper still wont take off the veil so mr. clark tries to lift the veil from hoopers face and hooper says everyone is wearing a veil
now the people are frightened and father hooper falls back with a smile on his face
His last words stay on everyone's minds.
Mr. Hooper is buried with the veil still on his face.
