Modesty of dress at Mass is essential June 6, 2011

I wrote a few weeks ago about a group of people attending a Mass most wearing very inappropriate attire, and behaving most inappropriately.  I had heard a sermon on EWTN on that subject about the same time, but could not find it on Youtube.  Colleen Hammond has done that work for me.  Thanks Colleen.

Modesty is something all Christians are always called to – that is why it is a virtue.  But modesty at Mass is essential.  It is also countercultural in today’s times.  Be a rebel – dress nicely and modestly!

If I’m not mistaken, this sermon was given (via EWTN) the same day.

This priest is right on – he has the right just as one can expect respect in one’s own home from others. I think many people (priests and lay people) struggle with the dress of others at mass, praise God this priest spoke out.

I hope more priests speak out and demand a proper attire from those they are ministering to. After all, it sets the tone for reverence due to our Lord.

You’re welcome! I usually feel like a lone voice in the desert.

Thanks, Colleen. It’s good to see priests stand up for sanity.
