My dear Dad and Mom, 88 and 86 respectively, were told by their priest that they no longer need to attend Sunday Mass, because of there age. They both use walkers to get about but can go to the bank, post office, etc with assistance. My brother who lives nearby, has offered to pick them up each Sunday, but now they refer to their priest guidance that it is not necessary.
They received Holy Communion monthly by the priest or EMHC, without confession. The time frame is 2 or 3 years.
My question: I know that we are supposed to listen to our priest with all due respect; however, I feel that if able, attending Mass, especially at their age would be a blessing. Are they guilty of any sin by not going to Mass?
God’s blessings to you for a response. Robert
