My dear fellow Catholics,
The grace and peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you always.
I am writing this letter to you today to ask for your kind and gracious help. In the gospel according to Luke, Jesus tells his disciples, “Obstacles are sure to come, but alas for the one who provides them!” He teaches us that as fellow Christians we should not cause our brothers and sisters to sin.
There are two groups of people that need your help today and these two groups of people have a special tendency to sin so we must do our best to help them to avoid sin.
The first group are those who are addicted to pornography. For men especially, who are in this situation and trying not to sin, we lead them to sin when we appear before them in immodest dressing. This dressing applies to both men and women, for there are both straight and gay men who are addicted to pornography.
The second group of people are those who have a tendency to judge others. When they see people who dress shabbily or immodestly, they are quick to judge them as disrespecting the Lord. When we present ourselves before them in clothes that are less than suitable for the occasion, we become a cause of sin to these people.
Therefore, on behalf of both these groups of people, I implore you, my fellow Catholics, to dress modestly wherever you go, especially in church. Dress modestly and suited to the occasion, so that we will not be a cause of sin for others.
Thank you, my brothers and sisters!
