Modesty in church: teach them from the youngest age...


This photo was taken in the port of Rome, Civitavecchia.

Kids at home have not been taught modesty and so now it is common to see some signs such as this on church doors in Italy which instruct kids of all ages.

I wish we had these signs on church doors in Canada.

It's the adults who I find scandalizing. They come to Mass in jeans, low cut tops, and shorts.

No wonder children don't understand modesty in church!

At Mosque they never allow modesty dress, at Temple no one allowed with bad manner of dress but only Churches we can wear what we want.....Why catholic don't teach their kids dress code for the Church? Hope this board will appear all over the Church in the world. The Church is the house of God. It is forbidden for men to enter with bare arms or in shorts.
It is forbidden for women to enter in trousers, without a veil on their head, in short clothing, low necklines, sleeveless or immodest dresses.' St. Padre Pio and God's Will Regarding Modesty..... By Daniel
