I was watching a Fashion Show, I looked at the judges and at one point I realized that this is the people who basically decide how society dress. What is ‘proper’ or not proper, they define new fashions and somehow implement them.
Then we find ouselves buying the products and that’s how we end up in Mass for example with people half dressed.
On the other side. I have recently learned that worship concerns how we live. That is the way we dress, our fashions and preferrances are all part of our worship and are witness to the God we worship. ( A review of the explanation of the First commandment in the CCC or other guide for good confession can explain more).
So considering all this. I thought. Shouldn’t we have a sort of catholic fashion judges too. I mean, as Catholic, having a particularly unique faith and having a great vocation to witnessing to people in the Church first, then our separated brethen, then… you get the idea; should’t we have some kind of Fashion proposals? I think it would be really interestign and this can be a great mission of vocation for some ‘fashion’ oriented people.
So we can put meaning in the way we dress, we can learn, live, and preach Theology of the Body in the way we dress. Dress gracefully and beautifully…
What is your though? It just occured to me that we are often conforming ourselves to this world and forget that we are called to be the light of this World.
