Every March and April they all arrive by the millions in Rome: the gorgeous blond girls from northern Europe. These are the high school and college groups on school trips for Roman archeology, history, etc. It's also the time of year when the cloths peel off.
This subject discomfits people, but modesty in dress in an important theme and we need to talk about it and our clergy need to preach about it and our Catholic parents need to be on top of it. The "too little too late" often does not work in this regard.
A conjured paranoia is one thing, yes, while responsible and consistent instruction in this area is another. The flesh hegemony of today holds a powerful force, but parents have to be firm and Catholic in their instruction and you even have to instruct the really little kids, too.
Your kids will raise a plaint, but you parents be firm and united. Our sisters guide us by example in their dress. Preening signals come from our wardrobe and this is why it can be of such value for our good sisters to wear their blessed religious habit as a credible witness to the nations.
Girls, you can still have a gorgeous flair. This includes you wearing a ball gown, or beach dress, or a wedding or party dress. With modest cloths a woman still shares her complete beauty and attracts attention and pleases others. In your still modest dress let everyone see your generous spirit, confident nature and well-disciplined body.
And sorry to make readers angry, but the "bikini" is not appropriate dress for a Catholic girl or woman.
