Why Modesty




Catechism of the Catholic Church on Modesty

     CCC, The Ninth Commandment Section, "You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or his manservant, or his maidservant, or his ox, or his ass, or anything that is your neighbor's."



Theology of the Body

      To understand "modesty in dress," and why each of us, men and women, boys, girls, and teens, are all called to live this (modesty in dress) in Our Catholic Faith, we must understand the Theology of the Body. Remember, Modesty, one of the Twelve Fruits of the Holy Spirit, guards purity and chastity.

Modesty and Mary

      "When I think of the United States, I think of this: one of the things Our Lady especially asked for was modesty in dress. There seems to me to be not much modesty in the life of the women of your country. But modesty would be a good sacrifice to offer to Our Lady, and it would please her. If the Catholics in your country could make a league for will greatly please Our Lady." Sister Lucy speaks to an American couple.  


Our Lady said to Sister Lucy at Fatima:  "There will be fashions which will greatly offend My Divine Son".   


"Those who keep the Law of God", Jacinta said, "should not follow fashions....fashions will arise which will greatly offend God."



The Popes and the Magisterium

      The Popes have spoken with authority on modesty in dress. Pope Benedict XV (1914-1922) and successors, Popes Pius XI and Pius XII, have promoted modesty in dress. Pope Benedict XV proclaimed: " cannot sufficiently deplore the blindess of so many women of every age and station. Made foolish by a desire to please, they do not see to what degree the indecency of their clothing shocks every honest man and offends God. Most of them would formerly have blushed for such apparel as for a grave fault aginst Christian modesty. Now it does not suffice to exhibit themselves on public thoroughfares; they do not fear to cross the threshold of churches, to assist at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, and even to bear the seducing food of shameful passions to the Holy Altar, where one receives the Heavenly Author of Purity."
