Drug addict family members

  • Everyone in my immediate family smokes marijuana as a daily activity. They were all baptized Catholics. Of course they don't go to Mass or confession anymore. The sinful habit goes back decades and has its source as my mother. I told her I wouldn't go to visit on Thanksgiving since she let me know that my brother will be bringing the marijuana and I was expected to contribute with money. I'm pretty sure that there is little or no hope for them since they seem to be rejecting the graces God is giving them in His tireless mercy. It's put me in a bad position, where I am going to have to break off all contact with them despite not having spent the holidays with them for more than a decade. I can see how my brother, sisters and nephews are being scandalized and led down the road to Hell. Without judging their souls, I'm pretty sure that my Mother thinks she can live her whole life abusing drugs and other activities and make her deathbed confession. As it stands, money, money and marijuana is her god. Any advice about this is appreciated. (I don't live with any of these family members).

  • First learn from their mistakes.
    Second if you can afford it, have Masses offered for their conversion.
    Third pray to their guardian angels, the poor souls in purgatory and their patron saints to help them.
    Fourth take your sorrow to Our Blessed Mother in the rosary.
    Fifth lay your sorrow at the foot of the Cross.

  • Don't feel bad.  My situation is different.  Because we are Catholic, we are not included family holidays.  My sister is big Atheist former president of local democrat club.    Still sad.  I mailed a Thanksgiving card.  I tried getting Mass card but can't get one from diocesan Latin mass until next July 2018

  • Forgot to mention that we will pray for you.   
    Don't give any money to your family either.  For Christmas , send basket of fruit to your mom and family.

  • Lord have mercy.


    This reminds me of the Oakland diocese in the flaky state of California where the nuts, fruits, and fruitcakes reside.


    In the late 1960s, the liberal Catholic bishop said it was better to smoke marijuana than to discriminate against Blacks.
    As a result, several friends of my mom started smoking marijuana and ended up in jail. They blamed the bishop.


    It's the blame game, but St. Peter will not buy this argument at the Pearly Gates.


    Yes, this is truly a tragedy. I will remember your family in my prayers.


    Pray for my brother who is also into smoking marijuana and drinking alcohol. He goes around stoned and preaching the protestant doctrine of ONCE SAVED, ALWAYS SAVED.

  • You are probably right to not visit in person, but you still have a duty to honor your mother and father so a routine phone call to check on her well being would be in order.  Monthly? Quarterly?  Your choice, but don't abandon your family even if visiting in person is not something you can do.

    Prayer and sacrifice is certainly needed, you may be instrumental in changing her life.

  • Pray for them and pray that all drug dealers rot in prison or worse.
