A space for those distant from a parish community
I wanted to start a thread for all those who, through physical or moral impossibility, are unable to meet regularly with other Catholics as a parish community, to encourage one another in the faith.
In doing this, I want to lay down one simple rule, that we trust that anyone who says they can't meet their Sunday obligation in the normal way has resolved, with a priest or with their own conscience, that this is indeed the case, and we don't judge anyone or advise them to take dangerous or heroic steps to find a parish -community whether that would mean risking their health, travelling great distances, etc. In fact, I would like to institute a 'dont ask why' policy for this thread.
Anyway, if you are isolated from the wider Catholic community, I can see how this forum wouldn't be the best place to find a sympathetic support network much of the time, so I am hoping this thread can remedy that situation.
