St. Frances of Rome was shown why certain souls were damned; one reason was indecent styles of dress.

In the life of Saint Frances of Rome, we read of a vision of Hell which was granted her, and which lasted for four hours.  God willed to show her, in the fires of Hell, certain ladies whom she had known in Roman society.  For what sins had these souls been damned?  They had been damned:

  • for guilty desires, even though these had not been put into act.
  • for indecent styles of dress, which were the fashion of the day, and which had been a cause of seduction and of sin.
  • for dances, considered inoffensive by the world.

This vision of Hell so marked Saint Frances of Rome, that she had it painted on the murals of her chapel, as a constant reminder of the judgments of God.  God then gave her the mission of drawing the Roman ladies out of their luxury and their vanity.
