                              It appears these German Bishops are openly condoning the committing of mortal sin.

Wouldn't be the first time or field of morals ...
They probably see it as a "valid reason" or something.

You assume these bishops believe in mortal sin. It's not like these women did something horrible, you know, like saying they're proud of being German.
It is sinful to miss Mass for that reason, but far more so for bishops to encourage it.
In other words, these heretics and false shepherds are encouraging mortal sin! 
Isn't there an old expression along the lines of lower levels of Hell being paved with the skulls of bad bishops?
The premise doesn't even make sense.  You go to church to worship God primarily, and also for your own sake to receive the Eucharist and the graces from participation at the Mass.

How is skipping Mass hurting anyone except yourself?

We have a duty to worship God, since He created us, and to do so in the manner He says, which He delegated to His Church. It's a violation of the third Commandment, to keep the Sabbath holy (even if the Church has transferred the requirement to Sunday), and is part of our Lord's first commandment, to love God with all our heart. It's also disobedient to the Church ("whatever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven") and is a sin against obedience, which is also why eating meat on Friday was (and, in some places, still is) a mortal sin. The sin isn't in eating the meat, but in disobeying the Church. With not going to Mass, it's both disobedience and putting yourself before God. And if the Church didn't command it, plenty of Catholics would never go to Mass, preferring to sleep in and do other things on Sunday.
Another episode in the German church furthering itself yet again from the faith.
