so im in afganistan and i usually go to mass every sunday with a friend. shes not catholic but wants to become one. she was is mormon. anyways she said she doesnt feel good today and wants to stay home. I said ok but thats where the problem starts. i dont know anyone that goes to catholic mass like a do and its company policy that we utilize a battle buddy system where ever we go. since mine is sick and just doesnt want to go today im stuck here. is this ok to miss mass or is it still grounds for mortal sin cause im skipping.
should i break the rules and just risk it?
