Haha, you said the secret word, which was F-R-E-N-Z-Y. You're lucky I saw that since no one reported it to me and your prize might've gone unclaimed. Anyway, PM me your snail-mail address to be rewarded...

I thought it was masturbatory.  That's good.

Very good suggestion. BTW. A rosary together each day.........
keeps the divorce lawyers away!!

I've been married for 51 years & 8 months & I know from experience that two people canNOT stay mad at each other, while praying the rosary together.

You make it seem as if these are somehow my own rules or guidelines for dress. They are not. They are standards of the Church. I merely state what the Church has said, not what I invented.

The FSSP priest explains the guidelines of the Church in the following sermon. The particular lengths in dress are covered after the 17th minute in the sermon:


http://www.audiosancto.org/sermon/200403...urity.html

He makes an interesting point.  The sermon does say sleeveless and shoulderless dresses are immodest.

That said, I don't believe that modesty is timeless and irrespective of the culture and norms of the day as this tells us the Pope has said.  I've listened to a lot of this Audio Sancto priest's sermons and I long ago reached the conclusion that he is a bit of a puritan and slightly unbalanced.  He has that American zeal, something you ONLY find in America.  A country where you cannot sunbath topless even lying face down on a deserted beach but you can find a pole dancing strip joint in every medium sized town and which is the world capital of the porn industry.  Honest Americans should realise that the rest of the world does not operate to the same extremes.

The priest goes on to say at around the 18th or 19th minute that the norms of modestly are set as to not be an occasion of sin.  i.e. The PURPOSE of dressing modestly is to cause men (and women) not to lust.  But this is a contradiction to them being fixed and not relative to the culture, since if you dragged the average Muslim from Yemen or Saudi Arabia or Afghanistan into a Catholic wedding where the bride was modestly but attractively dressed they would be lusting after her.  All of my human experience suggests to me that modesty is largely a function of what is unusual or different.

What causes lust for a Saudi would not cause 99.9% of western men to lust.  We are bred to tolerate certain clothes as normal.

If the priest's first point is correct then in an age of television and international travel ALL women should dress in burquas so as not to inflame the passions of the most sensitive of men.  Saudis travel after all and watch TV.

I very much doubt that any normal healthy man in the western world could be lusting at a bride in a shoulderless dress nowadays.  We cannot set the standards of modesty for the perverts and weirdos.

I am not sure that the men who get worked up about a shoulderless dress on a bride are actually lusting or whether they, thinking they are lusting, are actually getting some sort of "piety" high from worrying about it like old women and averting their eyes from a non-existent temptation.  I'm dismayed that many Traditionalist men are at all concerned about a Catholic woman showing a bit of shoulder on her wedding day.  If I had been to that wedding, I'd have been thinking about my own wedding vows, the price of sirloin steak, how I'd improve the internal decoration of the church and how the guy in front of me kept his shoes so shiny when he knelt down in them.

The brides shoulders would not have been on my list of thoughts that day.  Most men, I dare say, think like me.

Haha thanks...I hope they decide to do that soon. I could definitely use that cash to fund the England/France honeymoon! My wife always tells me that I look like Dick Van Dyke as Bert in Mary Poppins. I think that its mainly due to my large ears and dapper clothing, really. Here's my Halloween getup; I was an old tyme gun slinger.

Liza, that was one of the selling points of the dress for my wife. It really is a beautiful dress. I'm sure she'll try to wear it again in the near future; perhaps for coffee.

As long as you speak American and not that crazy English accent that Dick Van Dyke has you're welcome to stay at our house for a week.  That will keep your costs down.  I am about 30 miles outside of London on the Dover Road towards Calais, France.
