Hello all, I had a question about a circumstance I found myself in this weekend.
I struggle with a particular sin which, when indulged, prevents me from receiving the Eucharist. This Sunday morning, I found myself unable to receive. I spoke to my confessor shortly before mass, but unfortunately, he was able to do a confession with me before the mass. What struck me as odd though is that he told me to go ahead and receive. This seemed odd to me because, by my own admonition, I was in a state of mortal sin.
I debated with myself back and forth, and in the end decided not to partake of the Eucharist, as I did not feel that i was in a proper state to do so.
My question is, would it have been alright to take the Eucharist, since the priest told me it was ok?
