Roman Catholic Church On Nudity

"...the human body can remain nude and uncovered and preserve intact its splendor and its beauty...Nakedness as such is not to be equated with physical shamelessness...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...."

Karol Cardinal Woytyla (Pope John II) Love & Responsibility, 1981, traslation of 1960 Polish publication.
