As a teenager, my friend Mike was at a very low point in his life – seriously considering harming himself in the most permanent way. In that moment, seemingly out of the blue, a friend reached out to him and asked if he wanted to hang out and do something. Mike said yes to his friend, and – looking back – he believes that phone call saved his life.

Lately, my parents have been finding excuses to try to miss Mass and they call me selfish for wanting to go to Mass when they don’t want to. I’ve asked them to just drop me off, but they won’t. I don’t know what to do. In the Ten Commandments God tell us to keep the Sabbath holy, but he also tells us to honor our father & mother. Am I in a state of sin because I can’t go to Mass because I cannot drive? Am I being selfish?
