Ok so I’m a bit scrupulous but I need to know if I committed a mortal sin or not.
Today my mother and I were getting ready for 8am mass, our Priest is usually done with daily Mass around 8:30 so I don’t eat after 7:15. It was 8:27 and my Mom was drinking tea or coffee so I reminded her of the communion fast and then I left.
Before leaving the house I googled it and found out that breaking the fast is grave matter. My mother had already left (we were taking separate cars) so I wondered what I should do. Should I call her and tell her not to receive? Should I tell her in the pew before mass? I decided that since I was so unsure of my obligations at this point I wouldn’t do anything until after mass, both of us received communion.
After mass I told her that it is grave matter and she just said ok and sounded somewhat surprised. But now I’m worried that I was an “accessory to grave sin” since I knew she was going to receive communion after possibly breaking the fast and didn’t try to stop her and I’m really worried that I’ve committed two mortal sins, one for not warning her and one for receiving communion.
