I have a very good friend who, I’ve noticed, has been avoiding communion. She comes to church each week, brings her kids, and finds a reason to leave when it comes time for communion. She sends the kids through the line, and usually leaves with the baby, or takes one of the kids to the bathroom, etc. Then, she always comes back for the end of Mass. It’s been going on for a few months, at least.
My question is: Is this any of my business? Should I point out to her that I’ve noticed? I have reason to believe she may have had an affair awhile ago, and she could be avoiding because of not being in a state of grace. I know that her husband (not Catholic) knows about the affair, and I think they are working it out and it’s in the past now. She just never got reconciled with the church. (This is what I am thinking is going on, pretty sure, but not 100%). I’m really not trying to be a busy-body, just very concerned for her, and wondering if I have any business gently encouraging her to go to confession.
