I thought I had read/heard somewhere that it is a sin to attend mass when a person is not in a state of grace, ie: has committed mortal sin and has not yet been to confession. Is this true?
It would be a good idea to NOT go to mass if a person isn't in a state of grace, right? If it isn't possible to go to confession before Sunday and a person isn't in a state of grace, shouldn't they avoid mass?
I thought it is a sin to consume the Eucharist while not in a state of grace. I would like to confirm this, and if possible have someone provide an official explanation. Thanks! :D
