I hope that’s clear. Just wanted to know, and if people agree, then ideally tips for raising with a friend. We both attended a parish, I stopped going because as I grew in knowledge, I became more and more aware of liturgical abuses and /or practises that I would rather not participate in or be a party to. So, I wondered, if we know it’s wrong, and we know they will do it, are we then sinning by attending such a parish (if there is an alternative) . The community aspect is very strong, so I can understand why some people are attracted to it, but surely reverence and our duty towards God is more important than meeting with friendly faces once a week? If we become aware that something is wrong, are we not obliged to then avoid it?
FWIW, i did for this reason change. I’m asking genuinely out of love concern for my friend. She and her family do seem loving and committed catholics and I’m concerned they are on a weekly basis experiencing abuses which are damaging and weaken the faith. Should I say anything or just mind my own business? I run it round my head and really don’t want to come across as superior or that I think I’m better than them.
