Ties, ‘Saint’ Paul VI & Rehab4Alcoholism

Tie versus Casual Dress

Dear TIA,

I agree with your stance on neckties but I admit, the Counter-Revolution is not an easy task, especially with my fallen nature. I am a college student and I wore a suit and tie, sometimes with an overcoat due to the winter, for over a month last semester. I'm thinking that I don't want to attract too much attention to myself. Do you think that wearing "nice" clothes - dress shoes, khaki pants, a button and long sleeve shirt - is okay (without the coat and tie)? Wearing a tie and a coat has earned me a few compliments but other people have made fun of me for it. And again, I worry about attracting attention to myself, whether this is acceptable as a Christian, as a Catholic.

Also, my parents told me there's a difference between "Dress" and "casual" clothes, and I tend to agree, at least that dress clothes are a full suit and tie, and casual clothes are dress clothes without the coat and tie. Can you speak to this distinction, if it exists? I would like to know how Catholics should dress in "Casual" circumstances, like visiting intimate friends where wearing a coat and tie would seem gauche, going to the post office, or interacting with family at home. Is there a distinction between casual and dress in Public life? In family life?

Finally, I believe Dr. Marian Horvat wrote about country vs. city life in one of her books, explaining that certain city conventions don't apply to country folk. I live in the country so I wonder if this gives more reason for me to dress nicely, but without the coat and tie except for "Dress" occasions (church, business, etc).

God bless you, for patiently hearing my question.

     Yours truly.


"For the true friends of the people are neither revolutionaries nor innovators but traditionalists." - Pius X


TIA responds:

Dear M.W.,

Keep using your tie every day. Often family members and friends – as in the cases you reported – are the spearhead of the Revolution to pressure us to make concessions.

Countdown to the Canonization of Paul VI

Dear TIA,

In the 17th Century our Lady prophesied that at the end of the 19th Century, and especially in the 20th Century, Satan would reign almost completely by the means of the Masonic sect.

Paul VI's funeral oration by the former Grand Master of "Palazzo Giustinian,i, Giordano Gamberini, printed in La Rivista Massonica magazine reads:

"To us, it is the death of him who made the condemnation of Clement XII and his successors fall. That is, it is the first time - in the history of modern Freemasonry - that the head of the greatest Westerner religio dies not in a state of hostility with Freemasons! "... For the first time in history, the Freemasons can pay respect to the tomb of a pope, without ambiguities or contradictions. "

Paul VI Abolished the Traditional Mass


In a discourse to twenty new cardinals, nominated in a 1976 consistory, Paul VI explicitly declared that the new Mass (Novus Ordo) was promulgated to replace the old Mass (Tridentine), in accordance with the norms of Vatican II. Further, the adoption of the new Mass is not optional, and only infirm or elderly priests are permitted to say the old Mass, provided no one else is in attendance.

"And they shall defile the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the continual sacrifice, and they shall place there the abomination unto desolation." [Daniel 11:31]

English translation below of relevant part of Concistoro Segreto del Santo Padre Paolo VI per la Nomina di Venti Cardinali. Link to full text in Italian here.

"It is in the name of Tradition that we ask all our children, all Catholic communities, to celebrate, in dignity and with fervor, the renewed Liturgy. The adoption of the new "Ordo Missae" is certainly not left to the will of the priests or of the faithful: and the Instruction of June 14, 1971 provided for the celebration of Mass in the ancient form, with the authorization of the ordinary, only for elderly or infirm priests who offer the Divine Sacrifice sine populo.

"The Novus Ordo was promulgated to replace the old, after mature deliberation, following the requests of the Second Vatican Council. Similarly, our holy predecessor Pius V had made mandatory the Missal reformed under his authority, following the Council of Trent."
