Mexican archbishop suggests dress code for Mass

July 27, 2011

Archbishop Jose Guadalupe Martin Rabago of Leon, Mexico, has issued a call for modest and appropriate attire in church.

“If you have any respect for this place, dress appropriately,” said the archbishop. He said that women should not come to Mass in miniskirts or halters, and men should not wear shorts or sandals.

Ordinary people know that different dress is expected for different occasions, the archbishop said, and what is appropriate wear for the beach is not appropriate for a wedding--or for Sunday Mass.

    Sorry, Jesus -- you can't some in. No sandals allowed.
