… when It’s the second time i’ve found a packet of condoms after my parents went out shopping?
This is quite long, please bare with me.
I’m 16 and I live and grow in a Catholic household, and i don’t mean that i’m indoctrinated, i’ve chosen to live my faith. I just do not know my parents are fully aware that artificial contraceptives are immoral.
Anyway, during the first time which was late last year, I wanted to find time to talk to my father about my concerns, although it would be very awkward. He is often busy and in constant travel. My family eats dinner together where we talk about almost anything, but it is inappropriate to bring it up. So I just pasted a little sticky saying something like, “To use this is sin” on the box.
I forgot about it then. Until last few weeks ago. There was a new box and I carefully removed its contents. I replaced it with information on Church’s stance on artificial contraceptives and sealed it as if its brand new. I hid the original contents some place else. Last two days ago he left for work and while I was cleaning the master bedroom, the packet where I had left box in the drawer is gone.
I don’t feel any remorse about it nor do I find it ‘extreme’, just like how I ripped my friend’s pornographic magazine when I was younger. I later found out that St. Dominic Savio did the same thing.
I honour and love my father very much, but I don’t know how to go about this… I want to communicate with him, or is it because I’m younger, It will give me a voice of authority over my father? I hope that’s not the case, obeying God comes before that. If I’m passive about the situation, I can only wonder what will happen.
I’m not here to debate, i’m here for advice when he comes back. Please do help.
THANK YOU in advance! :yup:
