I would like some help with something. My sister will be coming to visit for 3 weeks and I think she’ll be coming to daily Mass with me at times. The thing is that she’s not a practicing Catholic any longer :(, has been away from the Church for many years, but is a faith-filled woman who attends her Christian church regularly. Several months ago we were at a niece’s wedding Mass and I saw that she (and other fallen away family members) received Communion.
I know this is wrong and I would be grateful for suggestions for a gentle, non-judgmental way to explain to her that it’s not appropriate for her to receive Eucharist without making it sound as though she’s wrong, bad, not worthy - that Jesus doesn’t want to come to her … you know what I mean. I love her dearly and don’t want to hurt her, but I’m not comfortable just allowing that to happen.
Thanks in advance.
