[quote=Coder]Suppose you were planning to do some work Saturday evening into the night and participate in mass on Sunday. However, due to a winter storm predicted for Saturday night, you decided that in order to attend mass it would be best to go Saturday afternoon.
Would it still be OK to work Saturday night or does your Sabbath start after attending mass? [Either way, I would not plan to work Sunday (the only exception being that sometimes I work past midnight but I am not scrupulous about that).]
What kind of work are we talking about ? How necessary is this to the functioning of the community and or your family?
Is this work that can be done earlier or that can be “Put off until tomorrow”?
How bad of a Winter Storm are we talking about? Are we dealing with something that you bbelieve will resonable blosk the roads and rebove you access to your mass?
Have you taked about this to you parish prist or your spiritual director or so other authority in your parish and in your life?
Let’s try answering those so we have a better idea just what it is we dealing with. The fact that you’re the question says something favorable about your character.
May god bless you with discernment,
In Christ, Michael
