The faithful have a right to be told...


The sign reads "Also the body has its own language. Dress with dignity and respect in the sacred place."
This is nice. It makes it known that there is such a thing as a sacred space and that dignity and respect are at issue with the language of dress.
Pastors, it takes your initiative.
And sorry to anger some, but shorts are not to be worn inside a Catholic place of worship.

I'm very sorry to say that one of the eucharistic minister at my campus church last Sunday was wearing short shorts. I as a fellow female was quite scandalized.

Quite right, John. Shorts are inappropriate attire for church and should not be worn by either sex when visiting or (worse still) worshipping in a holy place.

And yet in one of the videos below of a TLM Mass we see a gentlemen clearly in shorts upon entry of the clergy into the Church.. A blatant violation that people need to be educated about..Time for Rome to speak once again about this.
