I go camping a lot, and I always get myself to Sunday Mass somehow when I am out.
I am sometimes invited to go on wilderness canoe trips where there is no church. (No people, either, sometimes.:eek:) I know if you are travelling where Mass is not available, the church excuses you from the Sunday obligation. However, this travel is not necessary for me -- a business trip, or a visit to family or friend -- it is simply a vacation. I would really like to go, but do not want to offend God. My question is, if it is not neccesary for life, should I even accept such an invitation to go on a trip that I know would make me miss Mass?
