Hello good people of CAF,
This is my first post on here, so my apologies if I don’t do this correctly. My problem is as follows: I am a convert to Catholicism of the age of 17. The rest of my family is Protestant (one parent is, in fact, a minister). Our normal arrangement is that I am allowed to go to the 5:00 Saturday Vigil Mass, and then, come Sunday morn, expected to attend a Worship Service with them. I don’t receive the Communion bread there, for it is just that, bread. I usually stand there and (attempt to) pray the Rosary in my head. This is because several pre-Vatican II documents -like my trusty ol’ Baltimore Catechism- denounce participating in non-Catholic worship as sinful. I fear that my hesitancy to refuse to go with them when I originally converted (in 2016) has allowed this situation to build up to a point where my weekends are now just an occasion of stress and worry. Am I sinning in all of this, and what do you guys recommend I do?
God love you,
