This website (still under construction) is dedicated to the promulgation and education of Catholic Modesty. Everything is connected to the Teachings of the Faith, and the learning of what is means to be “modest“, and all that follows. It is not meant to force anyone into following anything, but is merely here to explain exactly what means what, and why and how.
Modesty, according to the Catholic Church, has connections not only with the outward apparel of the person (male or female) but also with how a person speaks, how they act towards others (their demeanor), their example, manner, simplicity… the list goes on. The word, modesty, aside from being a fruit of the Holy Spirit is also connected with the virtue of Temperance.
