One must attend Mass on Sundays and all Holy Days of Obligation on pain of mortal sin unless one is severely and physically impeded from doing so. Surely you knew that, yes?

The nature of the Liturgy (The Mass and the Divine Office) in being the public and official worship of Holy Mother Church means that the graces it effects are mystically and universally provided to all members of the Church in a state of grace. Hence, at no time (within a state of grace), are we ever severed from the merit and efficacious grace of the Liturgy, as given to us by Christ Himself.

Unless one is severely impeded? Surely you realize the canonical expectations with respect to distance traveled?

Does that canon require you to attend the NO?
