Okay, so I added a pocket square to my regular attire of suit and tie, sometimes shirt and tie. The point is I try to dress the best I can for the Lord, better than I would going out to dinner or whatever. I added the pocket square for Father’s day.
My 6 year old son dressed in a suit today, also. He’s usually in a shirt and tie, throwing in a vest every once in while. Nobody else at our parish really “dresses up.”
After Mass, we were walking down the main isle, ready to greet Father, and a nice gentleman comes up to us, remarks on how nice we look, how nice it is to see father and son dressed nicely together. Then he adds the following:
“You must be going somewhere special after here.” :banghead:
I didn’t say anything, just smiled.
I don’t see this guy too often at Sunday Mass. Maybe he goes to the Saturday vigil regularly, in which case he wouldn’t know my regular attire. But to say that there is something more special after Mass is just another piece of blatant evidence that the way the Novus Ordo is conducted has lead to the decline of the liturgy. The Novus Ordo can be reverent, but it needs some work.
Well, I’m getting ready again for Mass today; the Tridentine at noon.
