Having the female form outlined is more provocative than a skirt of dress. Plus, pants are men’s clothes and not women’s clothes. I wear nice dresses or skirts to Mass and I get all of these second-hand at a local shop. One can pay less than $200 per year and look feminine and neat.
I wear pants at home and change to skirts when I go out, to the doctor’s or work, or shopping
As to shorts, oh my goodness, everytime we go to Mass I pray that the young men, including those in my family, do not notice the short-shorts of the young girls. None of the teens at our Mass wear feminine attire. The NORMAL dress for our Masses, sadly, is jeans, on men and women alike. I do not understand this….
I can go on, and I apologize for being so abrupt
Why would anyone want to attend Mass, spend some ‘quiet time’ with ‘Jesus’ during Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament or in Church, waiting for their turn for Confession, in inappropriate attire? Its bad enough, that we are ‘forced’ to look at people on a daily basis, who dress very provocatively, almost naked at times! Do these people realize how much they are gravely hurting and mocking ‘Our Sweet, Heavenly, Eternal Father God? They have taken solemn vows to ‘continue’ to teach the Gospel of Our Loving Savior, ‘Jesus Christ. They will be ‘held responsible’ for every soul on this earth that turned always from Our Heavenly Loving Father God! Many a times in my life, I have come upon priests who do not dress in their appropriate ‘black attire.
Nuns are even worse. A majority do not even wear the appropriate ‘dress and veil’ that completely cover their bodies.
