Dress 衣着

Today we celebrated The Feast of Epiphany :God revealed himself in human form through Jesus Christ to all man. Thus come to the end of Christmas liturgical season.

At today's morning Mass, I was attentive to the feast of God's Revelation to man, but was slightly distracted by another revelation.

A lady came in slightly late after the Mass started and seated right in front of me. I couldn't help but noticed her sleeveless dress with two bra straps clearly exposed. For a good ten minutes, she also tried to push the straps back. Thanks to our efficient air conditioning system, she felt cold and decided to cover herself with a shawl.

It was a distracting revelation. I would not say it was sinful, or lead to sin, nor too little for too much, but simply inappropriate dressed for the occasion.

I would put her same category as a man coming to Mass wearing a T-shirt with some offensive wordings and pictures or come in shorts.



今天我们庆祝主显节:天主透过耶稣,以人的身份显示给世人。这也标志着圣诞期的结束。

在今天早上的弥撒里,我很专注的跟着主显节弥撒进程,但也给另类的显现给干扰了。

在弥撒开始后不久,一位妇人进来,就坐在我的前面。我不可能回避的看到这妇人穿的是见无袖装,肩膀突露,两条胸围带清楚的露在肩上。大约整十分钟里,还好几次的用手去调整。幸好我们教堂的冷气系统非常的好,不久她也觉得冷,自个儿的裹上披绢,直到弥撒结束。

这是非常干扰的显现。我不会说是罪恶,也不会引人犯罪,或者说是穿的太少,但确是穿着不当。我把她与一个男士来参加弥撒时,穿着印上不恰当字句或图像T恤,或者穿短裤的放在同一等类。

配合场合,穿着适合是非常重要的。

你所提的情况或相似情况,我相信也发生在其他圣堂。

在诗巫神父时不时都会提醒教友们穿着要得体。在我们的圣堂(我相信其他的圣堂也有)外的布告栏还贴有图文并茂的穿着法则。然而,一小部份教友,就是不把它当着一回事,我行我素,只为自己的方便
,穿平时只在家穿的 T-衫和拖鞋上圣堂参加弥撒者有,想要向别人展现已身材而穿得少到不能再少者
也有,遇到这种情况,我们就没有你那么 “幸运",一冷,当事者自会加上肩披之类的的东西,我们
诗巫到底是很热的而圣堂又没有冷气·····

(“新酿”已收到了,谢谢。)

哈哈,你们没有冷气,那可以穿的更少了 :D
