I would appreciate any advice on this...
I feel like I am just causing my mom to dislike the Catholic Church. I am the only Catholic in my family. I am graduating in June and my family was planning on going to the graduation ceremony which is in another city... that is a Saturday, and then I was going to go to church there on Sunday (the church I used to attend when I went to university and I really miss that parish).
My mom told me today that her and dad were thinking of combining the trip to the city with another trip, and leaving there on Sunday morning..which means I wouldn't be able to fulfill my Sunday obligation. I told mom, I need to go to church.. and she got upset at me and the church and then told me that if I want to do it that way, I should just take the bus there and go to my graduation alone. She got really upset :( she talks really negatively about the Catholic Church sometimes. I am afraid it's my fault :(
well I was wondering... should I have simply agreed to go? I am not sure what to do now... I know I shouldn't miss church.. and I feel really sad because it's like I'm causing my mom to dislike Catholicism, but this happens just when I am trying to practice it and fulfill my obligations :( I really love my family and my parents but I know I can't put God second.. but is what I've done uncharitable????
does anyone have any advice? thank you!! God bless
