I have not missed a Sunday Mass in 8 months and I don’t wanna start doing it now. Yesterday I woke up with strong muscle aches. Especially arms and shoulders. I did not have fever. I took Advil and got better though when I went to work (which involves being very active) the ache was back. I’m thinking of calling in sick today. I guess I’m getting a flu or something. If I stayed like this tomorrow, could I miss Mass? I know I can at least make it an hour, even if am still in pain. But I don’t want my case to get worse and not being able to work on Monday. Plus as much as I LOVE Mass, I’d really hate to leave my bed while in such pain.
So If I missed Mass tomorrow would that be a mortal sin?
