I’ve been encountering friction with my “Catholic” parents as I’ve become more actively immersed in following Christ, but it seems that one of the hotter issues is Sunday Mass.
Today they decided to go meet my aunt and uncle (and their children, one of which is my God child) at a fishing camp they have. Since they don’t regularly go to Mass, I asked if we could be back before 7:30pm to catch the late Mass at my parish.
However, they decided that they would not be back specifically because they wanted to force me to decide between Mass and family time.
Am I, as they insist, supposed to miss Sunday Mass to spend time with family? To me, that’s a no-brainer, but I’ve had it shoved down my throat for the last 48 hours, so I just wanted to get others’ advice on the issue since I’m more-than-objectively involved.
Thanks for the replies!
