My husband and I were confirmed into the Catholic Church last night and had our first Eucharist. What an amazing experience! The Easter Vigil service was pretty amazing, and being able to finally partake in communion after all this time… …
Congratulations and Happy Easter! Last night’s Easter Vigil really was an incredibly amazing experience, being Confirmed and finally being able to receive Communion. Thanks be to God for leading us to this.
Congratulations to you all If it’s all going how I (and God of course ;)) planned i will be a graduate of the Tiber Swim Class '10. I plan to start my RCIA very soon and I’m very much looking forward to it
So then you are no longer strangers and sojourners, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, in whom the whole structure is joined together and grows into a holy temple in the Lord;
***in whom you also are built into it *** for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.
And again i must oppose myself to those common misunderstandings, the moment a person is welcomed home, IS NOT at easter vigil mass, it is when they say their personal yes to the Lord and are accepted as catechumens by the church.
Easter vigil is the moment of full communion with the church, but should not be taken for a “we and them” situation.
St Pauls words refers to the moment a person accept Christ as lord, not when they are fully in communion with the church.
1249 Catechumens “are already joined to the Church, they are already of the household of Christ, and are quite frequently already living a life of faith, hope, and charity.” “With love and solicitude mother Church already embraces them as her own.”
