Why going to Mass is not Optional.
#24
I am unable to attend Mass on Sundays.  Haven't been able to for 3 years. 

This is due to the fact that I work all day on Saturday and Sunday at a hospital.  I work from 7am until 11pm.  All day.  Both days.

The wife takes the kids to Mass on Sunday, and I try to fulfill the obligation on a day later on in the week.  We typically choose Friday to be our day to go to Mass, since the 7pm FSSP Mass is held on Fridays. 

But yeah.  Haven't been to a Sunday Mass in a long time.  I am hoping to move to a day shift in the next 6 to 8 months, though.  (We'll be taking a monthly pay cut of $200, which will hurt us a bunch.  Single income family, and all.)

Anyway, I understand that some sort of concession was made for ancillary service people, i.e. cops, firemen, or hospital workers.  Well, that's me.  Someone's gotta x-ray people who get hurt on Saturdays and Sundays.  Right?
