Today at Mass before the Eucharist I put on hand sanitizer like I always do. Unfortunately some dripped on the jacket belonging to the guy in front of me. I was clueless on what to do so I did not wipe it off. I am pretty sure this was not a Mortal Sin for me because I did not intend to drip it on his coat and I did not know if it was a sin to not clean it off.
I know some people may be wondering why I use hand sanitizer. I use it because I do not want to catch a cold or the flu (after all, it is flu season) and because the books/pews tend to be germy from kids playing with the books and such. After all, being sick is not very fun.
But back to the main topic, was it wrong of me to not wipe up the spill on the man’s coat? What would be the best course of action in the future?
One very interesting thing happened after Mass ended though: The guy who owned the coat turned around and he thanked me for being a good reader. I felt that this may have been the Holy Spirit communicating through him saying that I was good to go. Either that or I’m insane… :hypno:
