[quote=Paris Blues]I have an issue!:crying:
Since I’m thinking about converting to Catholicism who knows when, I heard that I can’t take communion even at a Protestant church if I’m going to convert! And since I can’t take the Eucharist until I’m truly converted, I guess you could say I’m stuck in a “hole”.
I have not taken Communion since the beginning of October 2004. I really NEED to take A communion…but it seems like I can’t.
WHAT AM I TO DO?!!?!?!?!!?!? :eek:
I can understand what you are saying.
Are you in the process of entering the Catholic Church?
You will not be able to recieve the Eucharist in the Catholic Church until you finish your preparation and have your first confession. As to taking “communion” in a protestant church, I do not think this is a good thing as you are in the process of entering the Catholic Church fully and right now you are considered to be a Catholic.
And then, if you do believe as the Church teaches, the “communion” offered in a protestant church is not the Eucharist so it is no more of a symbol as the Spiritual Communion prayer offered above.
I would join with Tantum ergo in suggesting that you pray the Spiritual Communion prayer during the Eucharist at the Mass.
