Can I Attend a Weekday Instead of Sunday Mass?

Question:

Can going to Mass on a weekday substitute for Sunday Mass?

Answer:

No. Our obligation is to attend Mass on Sundays (or Saturday evening). If someone is unable to fulfill his Sunday obligation for valid reasons, then his obligation to attend is simply abrogated.  

If someone has missed Mass due to laziness or some other illegitimate reason, then he cannot make up for missing his Sunday obligation by attending a weekday Mass.
