I thought about a couple of solutions to the crying kids in Mass problem. For all intents and purposes, we’ll just pretend I’m married with kids.
Call someone who’s already been to Mass (or who isn’t Catholic) to watch the kid, and boom: problem solved.
I can stay at home with the kids while my wife goes to Mass, and then we switch.
With respect to Solution #1, I think the only substantial question we need to ask is:* Is it a sin to leave your baptised infant at home every Sunday and not take it to Mass?*
With respect to Solution #2, I think the only substantial question here is: Is it a sin not to attend Mass as a family unit?
