hi you all,
yesterday, i went to the pool to read. and i was there alone. then, three people who were there earlier (before i came) came back to get their stuff. i heard them say that they had been drinking, and they were loud and obnoxious. they were getting their stuff to leave, and one of the people (person ‘x’) wanted to drive, but the other person (person ‘y’) was like ‘no your not driving’, implying that she was too drunk to drive. the other person (person ‘z’) had a separate car, and had been drinking too, but he didn’t seem that drunk to me. person x and y decided to have person y drive. i don’t think that they were driving too far away - everybody lives relatively close over here. while they were in the pool area, i felt that i should have said something too them, but i didnt know what to say or what i could do to help. i was thinking maybe i could offer to drive them but the i was like 'but i don’t even know then how they get their cars back then" and the logistics of it seemed all messed up, so i ended up not doing/saying anything. i know i should’ve done something, but in the moment i sort of froze. i want to receive communion at mass today, but i am afraid i may have committed a mortal sin. should i should abstain from receiving today?
