Hi, guys —
I consider myself a lukewarm Catholic. I think of religion as home, but I'm scared to come back and I don't know why. I've been saying it for years and I keep stopping myself.
Last Sunday at Palm Sunday Mass, I noticed myself starting to cry during Mass when people were going up to receive Holy Communion and I was kneeling down and did not go up.
That same day, I went to visit a grave of a passed loved one for the first time since they passed. On Easter Sunday, I started tearing again around the time of the renewal of our Baptismal rites and homily.
I've also noticed myself crying when I am worried and I understand why, but I am unable to figure out why I cry during the Mass or when I pray, for no reason — it just happens. I'm not in pain, nor sad, or sobbing. I just start tearing and I have to stop myself because if I don't, I know I will cry even more.
I'm just confused as to what this means and if there is any meaning behind it.
Thank you and God bless!!
