I have elderly parents who are housebound. As the eldest daughter I have both family obligations (I am their executrix for one thing, and Mama cannot deal with telephone trees, automated voices, paperwork, etc. as she is an old fashioned houswife who left all that to Daddy and he can no longer handle any of it.) I cannot drive, because I have lost the sight in one eye.
When I visit my parents, I am unable to attend Mass. Father Corapi said that if you are unable to attend Mass – literally unable – it is not a grave sin. However, the Catechism appears to say that this means you have to be ill or the whole city snowed up, or something equally overwhelming.
Is my safest bet just to confess it and let God sort it out?
