My mom told me she’s not going to Mass tomorrow morning because she needs to cook for Christmas Eve. However, she would meet me at church for Christmas service at 6 p.m.
After we got off the phone I thought about it and called her back to tell her to come to the morning Mass or she can’t receive Holy Communion. Skip the evening service and I’d join her Monday morning (Christmas Day) for Mass.
Sounds like she’s not going to any Mass now.
She receives all the time w/o confession…she came back to the church after 30+ years, receives, but has not been to confession yet. I’ve always wanted to say something, but didn’t know how.
I just felt led that this was the time to say something.
Should I have shut my mouth about not being able to receive Christmas Eve if she skipped Sunday morning Mass? :o
