Will be turning Catholic (although I have to wait until next year January before I can start the RCIA).
However I have been attending Mass.
Easter is coming up.
Because I am not properly initiated into the church (yet… :)), I cannot partake in communion correct, even for something such as Easter? I should cross my arms and only receive a blessing?
And a secondary question. Once I am a full Catholic, but committed a mortal sin on the morning/night before of Easter, then should communion still be accepted on Easter even if the person did not have the time to have his sins absolved through confession prior to communion?
