There are these things called wetsuits that, amazingly, cover one's entire body.

Men in general are more fit to do outdoor work, to be in contact with nature, subduing it, dominating it, and harvesting from it to provide for and protect his family. Boys and men love to explore the woods, climb mountains, hunt animals, and show the scars to prove it.
Swimming is related to this rough, tough, more "outdoor" nature of man and is therefore more of a "boy" activity. Swimming, like bathing, is by nature a very intimate activity. There is something about the nature of swimming that makes it very easy for a person to forget their normal decorum, inhibitions, manners, propriety, and modesty in demeanour, to just let themselves go.
Women have a special role in setting the example for their families and society in all these things. Why is it that we often associate the word "frolic" with beaches? Is that how children should see their mother? The word "beach" is so linked to modern neo-pagan immodesty that a counter-Revolutionary Catholic lady could not tell someone "We went to the beach last weekend" without causing him or her to imagine that they went in a bikini, like everyone else.
You have to qualify it in order not to give scandal: Going to the beach during the summer is not just a common practice but is practically obligatory If you live within driving distance of the ocean and say "I don't go the beach" you are looked at as strange. Should a counter-Revolutionary lady, one who wishes to oppose the corruption of our world, participate in a pastime that is so linked to impurity and sin? A Catholic lady should not swim. I agree of course but I really appreciate you making clear this line of reasoning.
I didn't know it was you until I was almost at the end- I was shocked someone could be so spot on! It would literally devastate me that as a mom of soon 3 and a Rosary loving Catholic, I would feel as though i couldn't swim. It's actually pretty ridiculous. I don't wear bikinis and I swim with my kids. There are these things called wetsuits that, amazingly, cover one's entire body.
From the neck to the ankles. Pope John Paul II wrote, ""While we are on the subject of dress and its relevance to the problem of modesty and immodesty it is worth drawing attention to the functional significance of differences in attire. There are certain objective situations in which even total nudity of the body is not immodest, since the proper function of nakedness in this context is not to provoke a reaction to the person as an object for enjoyment, and in just the same way the functions of particular forms of attire may vary.
Thus, the body may be partially bared for physical labour, for bathing, or for a medical examination. If then we wish to pass a moral judgement on particular forms of dress we have to start from the particular functions which they serve.
When a person uses such a form of dress in accordance with its objective function we cannot claim to see anything immodest in it, even if it involves partial nudity. Whereas the use of such a costume outside its proper context is immodest, and is inevitably felt to be so.
For example, there is nothing immodest about the use of a bathing costume at a bathing place, but to wear it in the street or while out for a walk is contrary to the dictates of modesty. Of course, the SSPXers and other sedevacantist protestants will have to figure this whole issue out on their own, but we Catholics are spared such nit-picky nonsense.
However if there is such a thing as immodesty at all it logically follows that we must have standards even on the beach. My article is meant to emphasize the differences in dress between a Catholic culture and one that has moved far away from the dignity of Christianity.
Also, the reference to SSPX seems unrelated? I personally have no association or favor for that organization. Thank you for this quote, from a saint nonetheless! It helps he's my namesake ;. Certainly an intriguing topic I would have to add, though, that if it is unbecoming of a Catholic lady to swim, I don't see how it'd be appropriate for a Catholic gentleman to swim in public. It's easy to draw the line between the sexes and say modesty of dress is a woman's concern, while custody of the eyes is a man's concern, but I certainly see both applying to both sexes, though perhaps not in equal measures.
Well, I researched briefly the history of swimming in the Middle Ages in Europe and it was done, usually in the nude, and sometimes men and women together! I also researched bathing, and there are a number of illustrations illuminations of women fully dressed bathing nude men in a large half barrel! There is an explanation for this. Catholic respects healthy nature.
It was the Puritans who used water as a punishment, dunking the "sinner" into a river in a sort of basket at the end of a sort of crane!
Now, there were some immoral pictures, to be sure, but mostly just healthy swimming. Of the Art of Swimming. Whether all thi swimme by nature Man swimmeth by nature. Of the place and time to swimme. To swimme on the back. Here are some links-nothing too shocking, I do not think, though I am an artist. The book How to Survive in the Middle Ages in the children's section of your public library gives a respectful yet much more sensible and realistic look at the Middle Ages.
It was a rather bawdy time. The Victorian is Anglican, it is not Catholic, yet Traditional Catholics often point to this often artificial time of corsets and impossible petticoats as the Catholic ideal.
Such does not seem to be the case during The Greatest Century, the 13th. Hope this helps bring some balance common sense into the discussion. And does parts of history where possible lack of modesty middle or otherwise lend to solid examples of modesty The quote doesn't provide clarity of distinct lines which is what I suspect most are looking for. I'm discerning this area myself and as a Father of three very young girls, I'm grateful to comes across this blog.
Also with regards to cinnamongirl, God made us naked, that's not really a solid case either But you are correct, why we should discern carefully.
