7.32 How should I dress for church?

Fashion - #OnlineSaints

Most of us pay attention to the way we dress for a party. Going to meet Jesus in church, the house of God is a great feast. Customs vary from place to place, but it does make sense to dress up for this special occasion.

Already in her youth, Teresa loved Jesus very much. She made sure to be well dressed when going to church with her family. After she entered a Carmelite convent at the age of 18, she continued to ‘dress up’ for church, by donning her special prayer mantle. Have you thought about how you dress for church?

Meeting God in church is a great feast! There is no specific dress code, but if you realise that this is a party, you may wish to adapt your clothing accordingly.
