So yesterday I went on a retreat to where Our Lady of Mount Carmel gave the scapular to St Simon of Stock in Aylesford, Kent. I got back at 4:30 and the mass began at 5:30 (as the Saturday vigil mass) so I asked my mum whether I could go then because I thought it would be helpful for her. Half way through I realised its a holy day of obligation the next day (Divine mercy Sunday) and the canonisation…
I asked this morning, “Could I go to mass, please. It’s very important that I do!”
My mum said: “No because you went yesterday”
I tried to explain the importance of the day and why I should go but to no avail.
So I was wondering. If you go to the Saturday vigil mass the day before a Sunday Holy Day of Obligation would it count?
