Those Who Serve God Should Not Follow The Fashions


Yo clamo al Sagrado Corazón de mi amadísimo Jesús, que es mi único tesoro, que te regale de la abundancia de su puro amor.

— Santa Margarita María de Alacoque

1. The Mind of the Catholic Church on

Modesty in Dress

Often today we hear sensible people complaining about the immodesty in dress that is seen everywhere and unfortunately even in our churches. But, objectively speaking, where do we draw the line and call a garment immodest? And how can we be sure that we ourselves are dressing with proper Christian modesty that is pleasing to God? This booklet is provided to answer these questions. For on this subject, through his Church, God has made his Will clearly known. Perhaps for some, this booklet will be the litmus test to determine whether or not they are truly willing to deny themselves, to take up their cross, and follow Jesus.

The Need for this Booklet

It is widely known that Pope Pius XII often said: “The greatest sin of our modern generation is that it has lost all sense of sin.»1 It is less known that more specifically he once stated: “Many women… give in to the tyranny of fashion, be it even immodest, in such a way as to appear not even to suspect that it is unbecoming. They have lost the very concept of danger: they have lost the instinct of modesty.» These words spoken over 50 years ago ring more true today than ever (and not only for women). For in today’s post- Christian society where indecent and improper dress have become the norm, even among good-willed and devout Catholics there is much ignorance as to what is meant by proper Christian modesty. Yes, even the most virtuous of Catholics who attend daily Mass and have an intimate relationship with Jesus, frequently are not fully aware of the Church’s teaching in this matter. Could it be that this booklet is for you? May Our Lady, our true Mother, be with you to enlighten you to understand and to be receptive to the Will of God in this matter—for indeed, it may be a challenge.
