I submitted this to the AAA forum but as it didn’t get selected I figured I’d ask here!
My RCIA program was…um…perhaps not the most rigorous/orthodox one. :o None of us went to confession before we were confirmed and given Communion. At the time I didn’t know that confirmandi were supposed to be in a state of grace when they received Confirmation.
This has been bugging me since I learned it and have been thinking about it.
Of course I’ve been to confession many times since then, but I’m wondering if not having been in a state of grace at Confirmation has any repercussions.
Thanks for your thoughts!
