WORLD MISSION SUNDAY
“Give back to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and to God what belongs to God.”
On World Mission Sunday, this week-end our Holy Father, Pope Francis implores every Catholic parish and Catholic community throughout the world to renew and be united in their Mission of Love. He also asks that our generosity towards Catholic Mission on World Mission Sunday be a sign of our missionary concern and commitment to liberate and redeem humanity and so ‘give back to God what belongs to God’. Catholic Mission is the official overseas missionary agency of our Holy Father, Pope Francis

Is Missing Mass a Mortal Sin?
Given how precious the Mass the Code of Canon Law (#1246) proscribes, "Sunday is the day on which the paschal mystery is celebrated in light of the apostolic tradition and is to be observed as the foremost holy day of obligation in the universal Church." Moreover, "On Sundays and other holy days of obligation, the faithful are bound to participate in the Mass..." (#1247).
Therefore, the Catechism teaches, "Those who deliberately fail in this obligation commit grave sin" (#2181), and grave sin is indeed mortal sin.
Recently, our Holy Father, Pope John Paul II, repeated this precept in his apostolic letter Dies Domini (Observing and Celebrating the Day of the Lord, #47, 1998).
