"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

How transparent.

File under "bad habits".
Thanks DJ and JP.


  1. uh..yeah..

    Gentlemen...If you are wearing a garment that even closely resembles a dress, and it is white...might I suggest a garment that us ladies lovingly refer to as a "slip"....leggings might do in a pinch...

    And on the same subject matter...for those manly men who wear kilts ( and I would NEVER ask a good Irishman what he wears under his kilt)...for the sake of all the innocent minds (and impressionable young ladies) out there--please know that there is a proper way to sit in a kilt...and beware the capricious breezes at the St Paddy's Day parade...


  2. Sara - my friend who sent me the photo suggested just that, a slip. There were no problems when the habits were actually wool - and breeches were worn.

  3. Wait. For the love of all that is holy...

    Some priests wear cassocks/habits SANS pants?!!!
    Oh. Snap.

    I remember talking to a priest friend of mine once and I said something (jokingly, sort of) to the effect of, "I love seeing priests in cassocks. Priests who wear pants look oddly protestant to me."
    He replied with a smile, "Well, priests in cassocks are wearing pants, too."

  4. I can understand habits not being made of wool in warmer climates...or Chicago in the middle of the summer :)

    Or if they're anyting like the hot-blooded men I work with who have to keep the heat /A/C at about 60 degrees because they're burning up in their suits...

    I find wool impossible to wear..even my itty bitty beloved brown scapular itches me to death...
