Questions with Fr. #23: When is it OK to Miss Sunday Mass? Why is Rock Music Discouraged?

On this episode, we’ll tackle two listener questions:

Is it ever ok to miss Mass on a Sunday for non-emergency reasons? We know it’s not sinful to miss Mass due to illness or physical inability, but what about a family vacation? Or work? Can someone accept a job that will require them to miss Mass?

Also, a listener asked why Rock music is not ok to listen to? Is there something objectively wrong with this type of music (as well as pop, dance, etc.) that is different inherently than other types of music?
