Something happened at Mass today that I’d like to get your thoughts on.
I’m fortunate enough to work near a Catholic church that offers Mass at noon. I’m able to go almost every day druing my lunchbreak. Lately, I’ve had the idea in my head that I’d like to invite my coworkers to come with me; at best, one of them is Christian.
I invited one of them to Mass with me today. I had told him beforehand that he could not receive Communion as he is not a practicing Catholic. He seemed to understand. When Communion time came, he got up and I assumed he was moving so that I could get past him into the Communion line. I discovered too late to do anything that he had gone into the line and received from the priest!
This experience is making me wonder if I should invite my other coworkers to Mass with me. What happened today made me a little upset and I feel guilty about it, even though I know I did my best in telling him not to receive. Any thoughts on what to do better next time, or if I should invite my other coworkers? :shrug:
