Am I excused?

Not sure if right forum. Couldn’t make it to Vigil and can’t make it to normal Mass. I was told I’m excused?

If you can’t go, you can’t go; there’s no obligation to do what’s not possible for us. Also, if you’re canonically Maronite, you’re bound by the laws of that particular Church, including the Code of Canons of Eastern Churches, and so the obligation to attend the liturgy and on what days may be different than for Latins.


If you cannot make it to Mass through no fault of your own, then you commit no sin.
