About

Edward Henry Potthast
The Catholic Lady blog is a resistance to feminism.

Feminists want pride, selfishness and chaos to reign.  Their mission is a list of conflicting causes, united only by anarchical ends.

The feminist movement is comprised of abortion and birth control activists, LGBT lunatics, environmentalists, even Satanists: ideologies that hate objective truth, responsibility, higher law, civilization, the Church and ultimately God.

The extreme vulgarity of feminism makes little attempt to disguise its loathing for all things true, good and beautiful.  Envy of power moves women to shout shocking obscenities in the streets and murder children in the womb.

These hateful lies against the order of God repulse those who defend Christian civilization.  We see that like Lucifer, pride and rebellion drive this march on.  The demonic nature of vulgarity becomes clear.

The Catholic lady is one who opposes anarchy and upholds the law of God.  She delights in God's creation and loves very much the place of woman.

She appreciates the refined beauty of traditional femininity, realizing that truth and goodness naturally build her up.  She knows her vocation is hidden, sacrificial, and by this sanctified.  She loves motherhood- physical or otherwise- as the highest capability of woman's nature.  The Catholic lady then desires to give her life to her children, to civilization and in this sacrificial act is repeatedly ennobled.

In it, we find the graceful nature of beauty and sacrifice.


Thanks for stopping by!
Colette Zimmerman

  1. Very happy to have found your blog! I am always looking for blogs that have to do with motherhood and modesty and have had a difficult time finding any that are Catholic. I myself am not Catholic, my husband is a recent convert. There's plenty out there on the web that is Muslim, Mormon and lots from different Protestants. But Catholics concerned about modesty is rare to find! As I personally experience when attending Mass with my husband.

  2. Hello, I found your blog today and it was very inspiring. I have tried for years to make this a consistent way of dressing, but seem to always fall back to jeans for comfort or because I start to feel "different." I do keep to skirts and dresses for Mass and for my folk dancing classes. It just seems that housework and yardwork are more difficult in a skirt and so I end up giving up probably too easily. : ) Often what I see available in the way of skirts or dresses don't work for me or end up looking frumpy, but your photos offer some great examples that I hope to keep a better eye out for when shopping. Thanks for your tips! I look forward to more.

  3. Dear Colette, accidentally stumbled onto your blog while searching for something else. Impressed that there is a blog addressing an issue that as a guy (and seminarian to boot) I would personally find difficult to discuss - for obvious reasons! Anyway, hope you will be more influential having put you on my blogroll. All the best. J

  5. A young man, married with children had a blog called The Catholic Gentleman...I sought it out for my son, a catholic lost at this time, but I pray with hope...It made me wonder if there was one Titled The Catholic Lady. I am sure your personal life as wife and mother is very busy, but I do hope you will find a way to keep this up for the benefit of young Catholic Mothers and Ladies who need inspiration, encouragement and support from one of their own...perhaps one of your Catholic Lady friends could help you write it, or even a good little group of you...for the Good of Young Catholic Ladies I hope you can

    1. I was searching for information on the various scapulars, came across the Catholic Gentleman and then typed in the Catholic Lady to search - and voila, you're here! Happy to have found you.

  6. I love your blog, it really is very inspiring and I can relate to what you write, since I'm in a very similar place being at home with my little ones trying to really live out my Catholic faith.

    So thank you and God bless!

  7. Hey, Colette, love to see your blog! I stumbled upon your post about modest women's clothing stores, and wanted to let you know about my new online store - Mode Feminine Fashion. I'm also a young, Catholic woman who believes in revealing our dignity and reflecting God in all we do, including how we dress. I look forward to following your blog, and hope you'll check out my site - www.modefemininefashion.com

    Blessings!

  10. I love your blog. The entire blog reminds me of my late wife and her pursuit of excellenc in everything she did. A true lady through and through. You can read about her for free at the two addresses below. Many of her students wrote and said they modeled their lives and their teaching careers after he example. Keep of the good work. There are so few of us left. It is so sad to watch these angry women protesting something they know nothing about. Enjoy.

  11. Thank you so much for this. I am newly convicted on the "Marian Modesty Standard." I thought there is no way I could find a blog that is fashion -forward and with these standard. So glad!!! Plus the fact that you are open to life means you obviously do not have a lot of money. So there goes my last excuse. Now I just have to throw away all the clothing that does not fit the Marian model. Hard. And love that you wear the mantilla. My husband loves it! Mary from Quebec.

  12. I just want to say, that even though we have some very different beliefs and backgrounds, I am inspired by your quest for a more virtuous society and more socially conservative principles. I am writing about those things too on my blog, but through a secular lens as well. I love your "weekend in feminine dress" posts and want to do a similar idea on one of my blogs too! I wish more women were inspired to dress in graceful feminine clothing!

  13. Greetings... just recommending Colleen Hammond's "Dressing With Dignity" for all who may not have read it. it was the impetus for my 'clothing conversion'. If you boil it down, and look at Pope St. Pius XII, Vatican guidelines and even Sensuum Fidelium talks from modern day orthodox priests, it's dresses with neckline no lower than 2 fingers breadth beneath collarbone; sleeves at least 1/4 length (to the elbow best, was only relaxed due to market conditions) and skirts 2 inches below the knee- although Padre Pio called for 8 inches!! and don't forget the men! they have same basics, and more! as Mother Angelica said, "no one wants to see their hairy legs at Mass!" Sacred Triduum, Blessed Easter!
