As the title implies, Cold Season is coming, if not already here.
If you’re sick, please don’'t come to Mass and share your joy with everyone else. You’re excused. Really.
2181 The Sunday Eucharist is the foundation and confirmation of all Christian practice. For this reason the faithful are obliged to participate in the Eucharist on days of obligation, unless excused for a serious reason (for example, illness, the care of infants) or dispensed by their own pastor. Those who deliberately fail in this obligation commit a grave sin.
Nobody likes to hear the person behind them coughing and sneezing and blowing snot. And nobody wants to give the Sign of Peace to that person, either. Besides infecting others, what if you feel dizzy and fall over? What if you’re nauseous immediately after Communion while the pieces of the Eucharist are still recognizable?
Please, stay home if you’re feeling sick. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you and don’t infect them.
