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.
