The Vatican issued a document on Itinerants yesterday, in one brief section that hit the wires there was a reference to not drinking and driving.
Yesterday at our blogger's lunch we speculated idly about where government legislation might lead us. In ten years time will we will still have Catholic schools or charitable status, we wondered.
Of more pressing interest or concern was the proposed government regulations concerning the reduction of the amount one can drink have when driving to zero. I haven't kept up with this but the new laws will apparently make it illegal to supply alcoholic beverages to anyone one knows they will be driving.
Thus, if Mrs Jones on her way home from Mass has an accident and she is found to have even less than one unit of alcohol the provider, the celebrant of the Mass could be liable, and presumably her insurance company would not pay out.
Most probably this would not apply to Mrs Jones, but Father Jones who has several Mass centres might well be in a very serious situation.
