[color=darkblue:237w2ywt]I could not have said it any better. Basically it is up to the laity to evangelize on this matter. I printed out the information Jon gave to me in his post, and I sent it to my parents. I am trying to get them to understand the significance and grave matter of mortal sin. I also had them purchase the CCC about 4 months ago and I told them where to look on the topic of mortal sin. I called my mom up the other day and mentioned about the CCC she bought, and she referred to it as the “Bible”. So she obviously hasn’t even opened the book up yet, and she didn’t listen to me when I told her what was inside the CCC. I printed out information from Catholic Answers on who can receive communion too, and sent it to them. I know both if them are in mortal sin because they skip church a lot, and I am hoping they realize the spiritual state they are in. This weekend my niece (Goddaughter) is celebrating her First Communion. It will be the first time in about 7 years I will be attending church with my parents. It will be interesting to see if they choose to receive Communion or not. If they choose not to, they listened to me and read up on it. If they do choose to receive Communion, they will have obviously ignored me. My mom has been encouraging me to just come to the after party, not the actual church service when the First Communion is actually taking place. I couldn’t believe her when she said this. I think I know what she is up to. I think she doesn’t want me to be their when she chooses to receive Communion. My dad’s opinion is nonexistent on this matter. [/color:237w2ywt]
