Hope this isn’t in the wrong category, but really need an answer. A friend called us this morning in bad straights. To make a long story short, he’s lost in a hiking area. We are both elderly not in good health to try and find him, so we called police. They’re unable to find him. We’ve tried calling him on his cell. No answer
we were hoping to attend the evening Mass tonight. But now are worried that either he or police will try contacting us while there.
We are his only friends, he’s homeless. We also wonder since he has mental problems if he’ll be arrested or if the po.i e will bring him here
Do you think it’s permissible to miss Mass under these circumstances?
