The Dress

Plain Catholic women wear dresses. We are often "told" how impractical they are. Yet Plain Catholic women can do anything a woman in pants can do. In fact, our non-Catholic neighbor tells us we do more. We climb on roofs to repair them in our dresses; we muck out barns in our dresses; and we have been known to go running in our dresses. We even wear a modified dress for swimming. A dress is cooler in summer and warmer in winter because the layers can be added or subtracted easily.

Below is a picture from the Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Church Facebook page. The Sister is in full habit with a wimple and is rock climbing. Proof positive that with the right mindset we can do anything we set out to do.

Here is what the habit looks like without the climbing gear

I do believe there is not a thing I can't do in my dress. I did all manner of repairs and gardening, etc when we owned our home.
