I need someone to tell me if this is OK. I had a horrible traumatic event happen on Mother’s Day. I was out of the church for the past 9 years and I have no desire to hear the hoo hah about it. I appreciate others love the day and I am totally Ok with the parish doing whatever it wants. I am not going to sit there and have my heart hurt though.
Question: Is if OK to go to Spanish mass that day and fulfill my Sunday obligation? No I do NOT speak Spanish, that’s the whole point. I have my devotional guide, which as a little homily in it and I can pray the rosary during the homily that for all of us who hurt on this day, the Blessed Mother will comfort us.
I just want to know if it counts because otherwise I’m going to Confession.
