I’ve recently started to open my heart back up to my Catholic faith, and I have a lot of questions, but no one to ask them to, so I was hoping someone could help me.
Now, to give a little bit of a background: my entire family is Catholic, I was baptized when I was younger, I haven’t gone to mass in 10+ years. I’ve never truly lost my faith, but the last time I went to mass was when I was very young, so I really don’t remember much (the last time I went, I still responded with, “and also with you”, so there’s that). To sum this up, I’m very much a beginner (I don’t even know if I’m posting in the right forum).
What would y’all recommend me to do to ease my way back and have a deeper understanding with my faith? This can be anything, from what bibles to use to what a bible verse constitutes.
Also, I want to start attending mass again, but I’m a little lost here as well. I’m a student, and there’s chapel on my college campus where they have daily mass. I want to attend, but the thought itself is daunting. What can I expect? Do people usually genuflect at daily masses? What if there’s no tabernacle? Should I receive Communion? What even is reconciliation and what does it entail?
Sorry this is long, but thank you in advance!
