Full Question

Our family has always had alcohol during family gatherings. What does the Church say about this? Some people feel no amount of alcohol is acceptable.

Answer

Alcohol consumption in moderation is not immoral. But we should avoid the abuse of alcohol just as we should avoid the abuse of any food, drug, or other substance. “The virtue of temperance disposes us to avoid every kind of excess: the abuse of food, alcohol, tobacco, or medicine” (CCC 2290).
