Question from LAR on 3/25/2008:
i know that if i mass sunday mass because i am sick, it is excusable. does this also include sickness of manic depression and drug or alchol addiction?
if i miss sunday mass for these reasons, does it mean that i shouldnt recieve communion without prior confession? does it make this sin even worse if it is a sin?
Answer by Rev. Mark J. Gantley, JCL on 3/25/2008:
Sickness can be due to psychological disorders as well as physical disorders.
It sounds like professional psychological treatment is in order.
