My co-worker, who seems to be a pretty decent Catholic (attends weekly mass and HD’s of Obligation and confession twice yearly, has a cradle Catholic girlfriend (soon to be fiancee) who never goes to confession because she is “scared”. I know for a fact that these two “sleep together” as he is always “sleeping” over at her apartment and they have taken a couple of romantic vacations together this year. He has also mentioned once or twice the need for sex and how he cannot fathom how a priest could live without it. Needless-to-say, he is having sex with her.
Anyway, can you guys offer me something I can print out and give him to give to her regarding mortal sin and receiving Holy Communion. I tried speaking to him this morning about her not ever going to confession and he said he has tried to make her go but she refuses.
I could give him a printout of what it says in the Catechism but I would never be able to find it here at work (no home computer) - and also I’m not so sure that if it were a lengthy read, that she would even read it. Is there anything you can give me that I can print out and give to him for her to read regarding receiving Holy Communion with mortal sin. I also cannot understand how his very devout parents allow this to continue. I guess they would rather not say anything to her. A problem I’ve seen with alot of Catholics since becoming Catholic.
Anyway, maybe with whatever you guys can send me, will change her mind about receiving with mortal sin on her soul and get her to confession.
Thanks and God Bless!
