Once we were in the pool, our focus was on having fun with each other, not on the fact that we were naked.
(See “Frank Answers About Swimming Naked” and the long string of comments on the article.) For all its stress on modesty, Christianity has always affirmed the essential goodness of the human body as God’s creation.
Has there been a movement to be literal about this rather than metaphorical?
Frank Answers: I made up that prayer suggestion to give the questioner a different way of relating prayer to his “issue.” It was a totally spontaneous response, and I know I went out on a limb. I’ve been pondering the meaning of the body ever since I had colon cancer ten years ago.
Pope John Paul II gave a series of catechetical talks that were collected together as his theology of the body.
In 1981, he expressed the Catholic Church’s attitude to the exposure of the human body in this way in Because God created it, the human body can remain nude and uncovered and preserve intact its splendor and its beauty…
I also think we ought to return to “Sunday dress” to impress upon our minds through our bodies a sense of the importance of what we are doing when we engage in public worship in the presence of the living God.
But precisely because the way to the mind is through the body I’ve also given some thought to what it’s like to be physically naked in the presence of that living God before whom “no creature is hidden, but all are naked and laid bare to the eyes of the one to whom we must render an account” (Hebrews ).
We need to give more attention to our life of faith in the body.
When we’re clothed it’s too easy to ignore the actual body.

Immodesty is present only when nakedness plays a negative role with regard to the value of the person…The human body is not in itself shameful…
