I’m a Protestant who goes to Catholic Mass alot. I’d kinda like to join, but the RCIA schedules never to seem to coordinate at all with my work schedules(maybe that’s just my excuse).
So I’m in a sort of protestant limbo, looking to the Catholic Church, but still heavily influenced by the non-denominational, anti catholic sentiment.
The question is, when I go to Mass as a non catholic, do I genuflect, do the sign of the cross, kneel when others kneel, say the prayers and the creeds?
I already do some of these things but feel like a total imposter…your thoughts?
I can completly sympathize, I was in your shoes 3 yrs ago. Everyone else has pretty much answered you, that yes you can participate. If you dont already know you may want to ask WHY? Catholics genuflect, kneel, bow, etc. I found the action much more meaningful after these questions were answered
I personaly had a ton of anti-catholic garbage I was toting around, and I started my own secret mission to find out why the Lords presence was so powerful in this very strage and misterious church. Every anti-cath thing I thought I new was a complete Lie :eek:
If your intested and cannot make it to RCIA class please call your local pastor and ask to have a meeting with him, maybe you can make other arrangements. God Bless you on your journey, ask many questions, and dont let anything stand in your way. There is not any where on the planet that you can participate in this intimate a relationship with JC except the RCC
Prayers and warm wishes
