A few weeks ago (start of December) I developed a fairly serious leg infection. My doctor gave me a sick note as being unfit to work, and this is still the case - the latest situation is that the doctor has said that I’m unfit for work due to this until 6 January, when he wants to see me again.
When all of this started, due to the nature of the infection I stopped attending Sunday Mass and told my Pastor what was going on. A week ago my Pastor called to bring me Holy Communion and said “Don’t worry about attending Sunday Mass until your leg is recovered.”
I’m slowly recovering and things are a lot better but still signed off work until early January. I know that many people may think this a silly question or say I should speak to my Pastor - but should I start going to Mass again as soon as I feel able to do so, or should I wait until I’m “officially” OK again? Missing Sunday Mass is not something to be taken lightly but I’m also considering my Pastor’s comment about not needing to attend until I’m recovered.
