Some people think they do not need to dress up for Sunday Mass, since “God loves me as I am”. However the question is not whether God loves them or not, but whether they love God.
Let’s face it: People who love someone, dress at their best for their loved one. People who go on a date, pay great attention to what they wear. Brides even spend months to choose the perfect dress. Dressing well for a loved one is a human sign of affection.
“Dressing well for a loved one is a human sign of affection.”
And in like manner we should act with God. We love God. The Holy Mass is an intimate encounter with Christ. Therefore it speaks for itself that we should dress well out of love for Him. After all, what we do for a loved one on earth, should we not do the same for God?
