I just realized that my confirmation was ilicit
I was baptized when I was 12, first communion a month later, confirmation the following year. no one told me I had to go to confession first, they just kept saying I wasn’t ready.
of course I know now that I should have gone but I really didn’t know then… which makes me sad because I enjoyed receiving the sacraments
that age is a really awkward time to come in to the church. you basically miss all of catechism classes and after confirmation you’re pretty much on your own. and my parents couldn’t afford catholic school and they didn’t really know much themselves.
is there anything that can be done? I know the sacrament it still valid but is there anything like for a marriage outside the church where it can be blessed? is there similar for the other sacraments?
I guess it wasn’t really my fault, at that age, I really didn’t udnerstandd much about the faith. I still wish I could do something about it though
