A family member’s father is suffering from advanced cancer. He is also a former Catholic who left the Church years ago to join a protestant denomination. I recently enrolled him in a “guild” where the friars of a particular religious order will offer Mass for him and others with cancer once a month. The enrollment came with a card that could be sent to him, notifying him that Mass is being offered for him.
Would you send the card to him, given the circumstances? I am leaning toward not doing so and just continuing to pray for him. Usually that is what I have done in the past when I have requested Masses for non-Catholics, but am interested to know what others think.
