I am going to start RCIA this year probably in August I believe according to the Parish I have been attending and I have felt the call to join the Catholic Church for almost my entire life and, being raised Protestant, have a very deep knowledge of the Scriptures. I have studied very deeply the teachings of the Catholic Church and believe all of Her teachings to be true.
I have seen many times at mass people go up after the transubstantiation of the Body and Blood of Christ to receive a blessing, not the actual Eucharist. What are the practices of this and would I be eligible to approach the Priest for a blessing at that time? Also, how would I do that?
Thank you so much!
