A principle of Catholic Theology is that “Everyone is obliged to use serious care to posses on all occasions a true conscience. And obviously it is of the utmost importance that one’s moral life be guided by a correct and not by a false standard. — The means to be used for obtaining a true conscience are: a) a carful knowledge of the laws which govern our moral life; b) taking wise counsel; c) prayer to the Father of light:
The Second principle that must be followed is that Everyone is obliged to follow his conscience whether it commands or forbids some action, not only when it is true but also when it is in invincible error. However it is patently obvious why we must obey a true conscience. Thus for example:
If a Catholic sincerely and conscientiously believes it to be wrong and sinful for him to take up arms, he should obey his conscience and refuse to do so. But when he discovers his conscientious conviction to be mistaken, he should abandon it. And he has every reason to doubt his own judgment in the matter. For that such a conscience is abnormal in a Catholic is evident from the fact that it differs from the conscientious convictions of the vast majority of well-instructed and good Catholics. The isolated Catholic conscientious objector is much more likely to be wrong in his application of principles than practically the whole body of Catholics.
There are occasions however when there is a difference of opinion of two people of good will on what course of action must be taken, and in a sense there is a practical doubt that arises: doubt to as to how much authority, how much can one demand, etc. When in a practical doubt as to how one may conduct oneself, there several moral systems that one may follow in order to resolve the doubt. Definition. A moral system is a method of arriving at moral certainty from a state of practical doubt. There are several such systems. The practical conclusion is that aside from Rigorism and Laxism which has been condemned, the various systems are tolerated by the Church, and in consequence the confessor is not entitled to force his own system on the penitent or to demand something from his penitent to which the latter is not obliged according to the principles of one or other of the systems. Therefore the confessor may prudently advise the safer and more probable opinion.
In this matter of following the safer course of action, it calls upon one to have a rightly informed conscience. In fact:
It is of the utmost importance that the conscience of man be free from error and embrace the truth. For it is a true conscience that bears the best fruit, and nothing but the most grievous harm can result from a false conscience. The education of conscience has a vital part to play in enabling man to avoid error, and there are both natural and supernatural means to be used to achieve this purpose.
The natural means are: a) a good education from the beginning of childhood: a) a perfect sincerity in man with himself by a faithful continual and candid examination of his own conscience.
The Supernatural means are: a) fervent prayer to God, the Father of light; b) a strenuous fight against man’s disordered passions with the aid of divine grace; c) sacramental confession and obedience to one’s spiritual director.
All this being said as a prelude to what follows, probably one of the greatest problems inside of a marriage is the rule of conduct between husbands, wives and children. It stems from a certain misunderstanding of ones rights, duties and obligations. The are laid out in principle, and only need to be applied in practice.
The principle is clearly given by St. Paul: “Let women be subject to their husbands as to the Lord, because the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ is the head of the Church.” But he also most emphatically made it clear that this had certain limitations when he said: Husbands, love your wives as Christ also loved the Church.

1. The question is, what exactly does it mean, to dress modestly?
2. What does the Catholic Church say on the matter?

On January 12, 1930, the sacred Congregation of the Council, by mandate of Pope Pius XI, has issued emphatic instructions on modesty of dress to all bishops, directing them to insist on these prescriptions:
"We recall that a dress cannot be called decent which is cut deeper than two fingers breadth under the pit of the throat, which does not cover the arms at least to the elbows, and scarcely reaches a bit beyond the knee. Furthermore, dresses of transparent material are improper.

Women must be decently dressed, especially when they go to church. The parish priest may, with due prudence, refuse them entrance to the church and access to the reception of the Sacraments, [each] and every time that they come to church immodestly dressed." (General Pastoral Directive, 1915 A.D.)

"Girls and women dressed immodestly are to be debarred from Holy Communion and from acting as sponsors at the Sacraments of Baptism and Confirmation; further, if the offense be extreme, they may even be forbidden to enter the church." [Decree of the Congregation of the Council, 1930 A.D.]
