     My name is Colette Zimmerman.  The Catholic Lady is a mythical ideal that exists in the soul of every woman.  I believe that, "To a great extent the level of any civilization is the level of its womanhood. When a man loves a woman, he has to become worthy of her. The higher her virtue, the more her character, the more devoted she is to truth, justice, goodness, the more a man has to aspire to be worthy of her. The history of civilization could actually be written in terms of the level of its womanhood."  This quote is from Archbishop Fulton Sheen.  The Catholic Lady Blog is founded on this ideal of womanhood.  When I'm not here I am at home with my husband and five sweet babies, Thomas (6), Bearice (4), Rebecca (3), Oliver (2), and Henry...

  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.
