I recently came back to the Catholic church (about a year ago) after identifying as non-denominational for years. I was, however, raised Catholic and received the sacrament of confirmation at age 15. I consider myself now, at age 19, very passionate about the church and believe all of it’s teachings. However, it recently occurred to me that I was not in a state of grace during my confirmation. This unsettled me, as it had never crossed my mind before and I now consider myself a faithful Catholic. I have been to confession at least once a month for the past year, though, so I know I have been absolved of those sins. When I was 15, at the time of my confirmation, I did not even know that Venial sins or Mortal sins existed. I did not understand the sacrament of confession and had not been since my first reconciliation when I was 7-- I was ignorant of church teachings and had no idea my sins meant that I was not in unity with God! Is my confirmation still valid due to my ignorance?? This realization has really scared me! Also, I am very scrupulous so I don’t know if this is a ridiculous question or not.
