A Short Post About Shorts at Mass

A Short Post About Shorts at Mass

Time to bring up a big problem in the Church in America, being summer and all: men wearing shorts to Mass.

If you’re a guy, and older than two, then no. Just because Jesus hung naked upon the cross doesn’t make it okay to stand half-naked in the pew.

I know that nearly two minute walk from your air-conditioned car to the air-conditioned church is hell on earth, but you won’t die of enervation and heat exhaustion. Trust me, guys, you won’t.

I like what a friend told me their parish priest once preached from the pulpit: “You wouldn’t wear shorts to Buckingham Palace to visit the Queen of England, and she’s a heretic.”

Works for me.

About Larry Denninger

After writing at “Acts of the Apostasy” for more than 10 years under a pseudonym, Larry decided it was time to go public, and launch a brand new blog. It will probably backfire horribly. Which means you will want to follow and witness the impending trainwreck. He resides in Michigan.
