I’m an altar server at my church. Lately, I’ve had to deal with unpredictable severe back and stomach pain that makes me get very, very hot. Unfortunately, it hit during mass on Sunday.
I had served at the mass prior to this one, and I was fine, but the pain hit me during mass #2. It was so bad I had to leave mass before the consecration and go to the sacristy. I could not go back in, and had to call my mom to pick me up. Luckily, the other servers could cover for me.
My question is, what should I have done? I received communion at mass #1, but was it a sin to miss it in mass #2? Did I react appropriately?
Thanks very much for all your help!
