"The sins which bring most souls to hell are the sins of the flesh. Certain fashions are going to be introduced which will offend Our Lord very much... the Church has no fashions; Our Lord is always the same..." (Bl.Jacinta Marto)
I have chosen to share this quote from Blessed Jacinta Marto because I intend on sharing some thoughts on the issue of modesty at some point today. For now I simply leave you all with this thought and short prayer. Lord allow us to understand the importance of not only purifying our souls, but to also strive toward creating an exterior in dress that is pleasing to You. Allow us to recognize that our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit. Help us stretch beyond the confines of worldly lustful and vain standards. May we forever keep our eyes on the Eternal things understanding that what we wear should also glorify You. Amen (C.C)
