I am a non-baptized person (currently in RCIA) who attends Mass weekly (I think since November I’ve only missed Mass twice) and I know that I am not to take part in Eucharist.
However, when I am kneeling in the pew while the rest of the parish partakes, I find that I cannot keep concentrated on prayer for very long and my mind seems to wander.
Wanting to give full concentration to my thoughts/prayers, I did something different today. I wrote my thoughts/prayers down on paper during Eucharist and found that I was so focused on what I was writing that I mind hardly wandered.
My question then becomes, am I allowed to write my prayers during this time?
Is this something I can continue when I am able to partake in Eucharist?
