SAINT PADRE PIO'S VIEW ON SKIRTS VS. PANTS

"A woman shall not be clothed with mans apparel, neither shall a man use woman's apparel: for he is abominable before God that doeth these things." Deuteronomy 22:5

A woman who sold pants in her retail store in Vancouver went to confession in Italy to Padre Pio and was refused absolution...

"He commanded her to return home to Canada and dispose of all this stock, and not to give any of the items to people who might wear them, and if she wanted his absolution, she could come back to Italy and receve it, only after she ruthlessly carried out his orders." Anne McGinn Cillis, Arrivederci, Padre Pio, "A Spiritual Daughter Remembers.

Saint Pio also refused access to the confessional to those who were immodestly dressed. On the door of the church was this message...

"By Padre Pio's explicit wish women must enter the confessional wearing skirts at least 8 inches below the knee. It is forbidden to borrow longer dresses in church and to wear them for the Confessional." Dorothy Gaudiose, Prophet of the People: A Biography of Padre Pio.
