To preface, I’m a young adult currently living with my parents (one Catholic, one unaffiliated) until I can find a steady job.
Our family just came back from a camping trip which I was obliged to attend and whose schedule I had no control over. The campsite was 50+ miles away from the nearest Catholic church. By the time we got home Sunday ~1:00PM, the only mass yet to be said was a 4:30PM mass, which I let them know I was going to attend.
Somewhere along the line, they left with the only car I’m licensed to drive to run errands. They didn’t get back until 4:15PM. By the time I got to the Church mass had already started and the parking lot was completely full, so I drove home.
Given these admittedly unusual circumstances, did I commit a sin by not trying to hunt for a parking space a couple blocks away and walking in late?
