“I urge you, therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God, your spiritual worship. Do not conform yourselves to this age but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and pleasing and perfect.” Romans 12:1-2
Thanks to those who responded to my comment and thanks for reffering me to those websites and the Catechism. The Catechism has a short section dedicated to “The Battle for Purity” 2520-2527.
In short this is what I got from reading this section but please read it for yourself. If you are feeling the “pressures of prevailing ideologies” and feel like wearing something thats in style which may bring “unhealthy curiosity” (like tight jeans, low skirts or low cut shirts) you should pray for modesty which “inspires one’s choice of clothing” so you may have the fortitude to be “discreet” and “refuse to unveil what should remain hidden.”
“Avoid failing, not only against purity, but even against the least rules of an exact modesty.” -St. Paul of the Cross
“When she was thrown into the air by a savage bull in the amphitheatre at Carthage, her first thought and action when she fell to the ground was to rearrange her dress to cover her thigh, because she was more concerned for modesty than pain.” -Pope Pius XII, Allocution to the Girls of Catholic Action, speaking of St. Perpetua
“How many girls there are who do not see any wrongdoing in following certain shameless styles like so many sheep. They certainly would blush if they could guess the impression they make and the feelings they evoke in those who see them.” -Pope Pius XII
'One cannot sufficiently deplore the blindness of so many women of every age and condition; made foolish by desire to please, they do not see to what a degree the indecency of their clothing shocks every honest man, and offends God.
“Most of them would formerly have blushed for those outfits as for a grave fault against Christian modesty; now it does not suffice for them to exhibit them on the public thoroughfares; they do not fear to cross the threshold of the churches, to assist at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, and even to bear the seducing food of shameful passions to the Eucharistic Table where one receives the Heavenly Author of purity.” -Pope Benedict XV
“But how can you know anything of the impression made on others? Who can assure you that others do not draw therefrom incentives to evil? You do not know the depths of human frailty. . . Oh, how truly was it said that if some Christian women could only suspect the temptations and falls they cause in others with modes of dress and familiarity in behavior, which they unthinkingly consider as of no importance, they would be shocked by the responsibility which is theirs.” -Pope Pius XII
“The good of our soul is more important than that of our body; and we have to prefer the spiritual welfare of our neighbor to our bodily comforts. . . If a certain kind of dress constitutes a grave and proximate occasion of sin, and endangers the salvation of your soul and others, it is your duty to give it up.” -Pope Pius XII
Women: I know it is hard to maintain modesty in todays choices of clothing but I assure you that the Lord will take your sacrifices into account. I have heard a man preaching that before his conversion he used to go to McDonalds and sit there and check out girls butts. He said that he would even get orgasms by just sitting there watching normal moms in tight pants order their happy meals for their children. These innocent moms with their children did not know that their skin tight pants are really revealing what “should remain hidden”. I myself have found myself praying in Mass for the women in the front pew whos butts are almost in my face (I am fairly new to a wheelchair). I pray they may realize that they can be a distraction from mass and can be a near occasion of sin for many men. I can handle this more maturely now but I remember that some years ago when when I first started attending mass I found myself not remembering the homily after mass but I did remember the girl in blue jeans whose face I never saw.
Woman you are worth much more than how much attraction you generate from men or how many likes you get on your next selfie. Your are daughters of the King. He sent His only son to die for you. You are worth waiting for. You are worth dying for. You are worth the wait and the sacrifice. What remains hidden remains a treasure. What is exposed can easily spoil. Treasures have an ongoing attraction but spoils get thrown away easily. Your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit. Protect that temple in all its holiness and sacredness.
Men: You can also be a temptation for women. Please keep your muscles to yourself and careful with those tight jeans as well. When I used to go out I remember some of my girl friends would often check out my but and make compliments when I wore tighter pants. I did not realize it then but I may have been a near occasion of sin for them. I did not work out so I couldn’t say the same for my biceps or abs but Im sure some guys can be an occasion of sin to girls by flashing their abs or biceps. For some girls it can be the equivalent as to guys checking out a girls cleavage or legs.
“Let nothing be negligent about you… avoid all affectation, vanity, curiosity, or levity in your dress. Keep yourself always, as much as possible, on the side of plainness and modesty, which, without doubt, is the greatest ornament of beauty, and the best excuse for the want of it.”-St. Francis de Sales, Doctor of the Church
