I'm so happy.

Tommarow I am going outta town for a funeral that will be on monday. I was VERY happy to find out that the local church there has a mass at 3:00pm, we should be getting there at around noon.

here is my problem…

I don’t know if I will be able to make it. It is a VERY small town, and it’s probably a walk away, but I think that my family will be with my other family, comforting them. If I can’t make it, is it a sin? I hate going to mass alone.

Do you have your driver’s license yet? If so, maybe you could ask to borrow a car if it’s too far to walk.

If not, sounds like there will be a lot of family there. Surely someone could give you a ride.

Are your parents Catholic? Will they try to go?

It is your responsibility to try to make it to church every Sunday, but as a minor if you have no way of getting there, you are not held responsible.

I think I can to, I honestly think I can walk.

Yes, both of my parents are Catholic, they really dont realize the importance of going to church on sundays when you got “Other Things” to do .

But the problem is, I always feel responsible.
