I have seen this discussed on other threads but I would like some advice pertaining to a particular situation that I am in.
Basically, I was shopping with a girlfriend a couple of weeks ago and we went into this clothes shop. I spotted this lovely t-shirt that is exactly my style, (three quarter sleeves, and with an outline of a horse on the front). I suppose I didn’t properly look at it but purchased it immediately, and have worn it a couple of times since. Yesterday, my mother suddenly pointed at the horse in the picture and asked “what is that?”. We both stared at the shirt, and
suddenly noticed a tiny cross etched upside down on the horse’s forehead, and a pair of devil horns on his head. I felt totally upset that I could have worn this garment, and sickened at the thought of the amount of clothes with anti christian symbols on fashionable clothes nowadays.
But my dilemma is this… what should I do with the shirt now? I can’t wear it again, but I can’t in all conscience pass it on to any charity collection. And yet it seems wasteful to dispose of it.
I know some people may think I’m overreacting, but I’m not a very good catholic, and any thing I could do not to offend the Lord would soothe my soul.
Any advice is welcome.
God Bless and Happy Christmas!!
