DISPENSATION FROM THE OBLIGATION OF SUNDAY MASS
You will recall that I dispensed everyone from the obligation of Sunday Mass through September 6th. I expressed particular concern lest the elderly, those with pre-existing conditions, and those who are fearful or anxious should be troubled in conscience about missing Mass.
I am being asked whether the dispensation will be extended. If it is not, there are two factors to be considered; first, whether those groups mentioned above will now feel constrained to go to Mass; and, secondly, if more people attend with social distancing, would this create an undue burden on priests to add still more Masses.
All things being considered, I have decided to extend the dispensation through Saturday, November 28th which is the last day of the current liturgical year.
