If not a dress code, at least it should be mandatory to moderately speak about it every Sunday.

Since God is everywhere I think it is appropriate to dress modestly everywhere, dress code or not.

We should dress modestly when going to church. If we dress appropriately in any occasion we are going, more so when we are going to church. We are in church and it is house of God, where we give reverence and respect.

Whenever possible, yes dress your best, be modest and humble because you will be in the presence of God. Showing reverence and respect during the Lords Mass and Day is the way you can tell Him you're thankful for the sacrifices he made for us. For those who can't dress their best because they're taking a time off while working, or just thought it was more important to at least be at Mass and they were not able to dress their best, I think it's perfectly ok. We don't know what their circumstances are. They at least made the effort to be there, that speaks volumes, because many others would not even give 45 minutes of their week to praise and thank God.

I don't recall jesus hanging out with the G.Q.. crowd , as a fisherman I have often made it to mass in the clothes I was fishing in. I doubt st. peter would notice.

This is GOD's House and we do need to respect Him as our Father who created us. We are there to praise and worship Him and not treat His House like it is a meat market. Modesty is crucial in His House.
