Quick question. Would you judge the following as a serious enough reason for missing Sunday mass? Reason I’m asking is I won’t be able to go to confession this Saturday and I will be having surgery Friday and hope Im not in serious sin.
I’ve been having severe female problems (severe enough pain and symptoms they are operating on me.) I haven’t been doing much at all as the pain is worsening but was able to go to confession Saturday and the store to get food things for my surgery. But Sunday I felt worn out and though I did wash some dishes and do a load of laundry I spent the rest of the time in bed due to the pain and symptoms. But I pushed myself the day before to get to the confession and the store and yesterday to do some dishes and a load of towels for my husband. So if I spent those chunks of time I might have made it to mass, though sitting is quite painful due to the pressure it puts on my pelvis and such.
Am I being scrupulous or did I sin gravely and need to try to schedule apt with priest before surgery (though it’s going to be very hard to get there.)
