I’m currently in RCIA and am really looking forward to being in full communion with the church. One thing that I find striking about Catholicism is that there are innumerable pathways and patterns of devotion and worship. This seems wonderful, insofar as different people can find prayers and devotions that suit them best.
At the same time, it’s more than a bit confusing. There are so many choices in sarcamentals and devotions and daily prayers, I feel overwhelmed. I’ve tried to find an overview and been unsuccessful. Scapulars, rosaries, medals, eucharistic adoration, liturgy of the hours, candle-lighting, and so on all present themselves as worthy things. How does one choose, and why make a particular choice, when one doesn’t even know what one’s choices are? Or should one do as many of these things as one can?
Thanks, and God Bless
