Hi everybody- new to this site…first post.
Anyways, my question is- I am a baptized Catholic, but have not received the sacrament of reconciliation (baptized as a child, but have not gone through religious teachings, just started being ‘serious’ about it, through my (His) decision recently). Currently, I am looking for a RCIA class in my area to be ‘fully vested’ in the Catholic church, but in the meantime, I feel as if I should repent for my past sins. I understand that without going to confession, I cannot be absolved of my sins fully, but what ways can I repent in the current situation? I pray every day, and feel whole-heart-idly sorry for my past sins, asking for forgiveness.
Are there any specific prayers I can recite first, and then bring my sins to mind, or should I just keep doing what I’m doing with praying, and wait it out until I find and complete RCIA?
Sorry if that doesn’t make any sense…kinda rambled:)
Thanks for your input, and God Bless!
