  • The traditional Roman Catholic clergy has always had a clean cut (short hair no beard).

    What are your thoughts on long hair / beard on the layman?
    If anyone says that true and natural water is not necessary for baptism and thus twists into some metaphor the words of our Lord Jesus Christ" Unless a man be born again of water and the Holy Spirit" (Jn 3:5) let him be anathema.

  • I don't care for long hair or facial hair.  I like short hair, smoothly clean-shaven, well-groomed.  The Dr. House two-day grizzled look is just gross.  A flat-top crew or military cut is ideal, or, if elderly, a little longer, but it must be very neat.  No man should attempt to cover his mostly bald head with four strands of long hair that are shellacked in place.  This is just laughable.  Of course, I state my personal preference.  In many parts of the world, a priest isn't a priest without a full beard and lots of hair.  Still, it has to be neat and clean unless he is a hermit or a missionary to primitive peoples of some sort and he lives outdoors.
     St. Francis Xavier threw a Crucifix into the sea, at once calming the waves.  Upon reaching the shore, the Crucifix was returned to him by a crab with a curious cross pattern on its shell.

  • Wanna have some fun? Ask a prottie whether Our Lord had long hair. When they say that He did, ask them how they know, considering that Scripture makes no mention of Him having long hair. What they're unwittingly doing is relying on tradition (the painting Head of Christ, for example).
    "Kindness is for fools! They [modernists] want to be treated with oil, soap, and caresses, but they ought to be beaten with fists. In a duel, you don't count or measure the blows, you strike as you can. War is not made with charity. It is a struggle, a duel." -- Pope St. Pius X

    That's ingenious Charlemagne.  I will try that next time I get into a heated debate with one of these heretics.  Of course, by the same token, I did recently find a movie on netflix about Christ's life and it portrayed him with short hair.  Pretty sure it was made by protties too.

  • It would appear that our Lord had longer hair and a beard.

  • This is interesting.  I always believed that we were to follow the local customs of good taste.

    I hope my hubby never grows long hair.  It would be a 'fro.

    Maybe since the death of Pius XII, but it hasn't always been the case by a long shot.  Beards were favoured amongst clergy for most of the Counter-Reformation, namely the late XVIth and the entire XVIIth centuries.

  • I couldn't care less about the length of a Trad-Man's hair or if he chooses to have facial hair.  I am much more interested in the content of his character.  By the way, I do agree with Mithrandylan - a young, married man at out Chapel sports a well-groomed ponytail and beard. He is a very dignified, highly intelligent, and articulate member of the SSPX Resistance (as is his beautiful wife).

    Short hair and beard.  A couple examples would be St. Edmund Campion and St. Francis de Sales.  That said, it doesn't really matter.

  • Long hair is another sign of rebellion in our culture. I find it repulsive in men, and NO pony tails.    :barf: :barf: :barf: :barf: :barf:
