Why are you not immediately baptized in the Church upon accepting the faith? In the book of Acts they are baptized right away, but today I am waiting through the RCIA program before being baptized.
During a first communion Mass, when we went up for communion, the priest did not explain to the non-Catholic attendees what should be done, and many of them took communion. I am wondering how this should have been handled or how big of a deal this actually is?
I have wanted to pray not to suffer so much, but by doing this am I denying myself graces?
