Catholics called to celebrate dignity of women on Mother’s Day

.- The Family Life Office of the Diocese of Lincoln and The Leaven, a Catholic lay apostolate, will co-sponsor a celebration of the spiritual maternity inherent to women.

Project Mother’s Day 2006 will feature keynote speaker Colleen Hammond, author of the rapidly selling book Dressing With Dignity (www.DressingWithDignity.blogspot.com).

The fashion show event will include petitions to merchants, asking them to provide tasteful, feminine and modest clothing for women and girls.

“Immodest fashions, contraception, and abortion make a mockery of women,” says Juliana Davis, co-founder of The Leaven. “It wasn’t until I read Colleen’s book that I realized immodest fashions are tied to a multi-faceted affront to our sacred dignity.”

On her blog, former model and Weather Channel anchor Hammond highlights top designers, whose fashions demonstrate that modesty does not mean looking manly or boring. Her concept of feminine design meshes with the philosophy of recently canonized feminist Edith Stein, whose book, Woman, describes the uniquely distinct character of women.

The Leaven was founded in 1987 to promote Pope Paul VI’s 1968 encyclical Humanae Vitae.
