English Translation of Italian signs in front of churches in Italy: the body also has its own language. dress with dignity and respect the sacred place. (Not allowed) a sleeveless dress, in a miniskirt, in shorts.
I see where Twitter is getting bishops and priests in hot water with our pagan society which unfortunately now includes so many Catholics.
One priest is being criticized for asking women to dress modestly for Mass. In a tweet he said that immodest dress on women can be an occasion of sin for some men.
Is dressing provocatively for Mass, be it a man or a woman, an occasion of sin for either?
Does being modest equal being a prude?
Those who disagree with this priest's request more than likely would disagree with what most churches in Rome require of tourists. Shoulders are to be covered and appropriate dress is to be worn when visiting churches let alone attending Mass.
What do you think?
