So we has this neighbor who caused a lot of trouble in our family. My father does not like this man for that reason. My mother is the one who began a friendship with this man and recently, she confessed to me that she was having an affair with this man. I talked her into getting out of this affair. This was about three or two months ago. Today, she asked me if I can go with her to take this man lunch at his job. At first, I refused, but then, so she will not start a big argument with me (she always says that I do not support her and she was making me feel bad saying that he was just a friend now and that what she was doing was not right and that I thought I was perfect). I decided to go with her. I feel bad now, like I committed a sin. The Catechism of the Catholic Church states:
*1868 Sin is a personal act. Moreover, we have a responsibility for the sins committed by others when we cooperate in them:
- by participating directly and voluntarily in them;
by ordering, advising, praising, or approving them;
by not disclosing or not hindering them when we have an obligation to do so;
by protecting evil-doers.*
Please help! I am a little scrupulous.
