Solemnity? Whats that? I think too many of our faithful have forgotten.
Just look at how many come dressed as if they are attending the ball game.
My wife works at a local college. She says that young women today have no idea of the difference between clothes to wear out to a club and clothes appropriate for church or work. I've seen a young lady(?) at Mass with a shirt that doesn't reach her navel and tiny shorts and I've seen a woman at work wearing yoga pants and knee high boots.
I'm starting to think that this one time the wife knows what she is talking about.
