I'm Catholic, so I must beg, Father, for you to please forgive me for what I am about to do—namely, show you stills from a clergy fashion catalog that bring all new meaning to the phrase "dad bods."
British Twitter user Abi Bleach found these stills from the Wippell's catalog, which has been outfitting clergymen since, literally, the 18th century (Europe is SO OLD, y'all).
And all I'll say is that the blonde priest in these pictures is inspiring more than one deadly sin in me.
Perhaps even more delightful than these pictures is the response from some actual clerics.

A BREASTFEEDING CASSOCK. Plus, there is this crushable cleric selfie.
