Your post was so helpful!!! Strange because I was just wondering what to do during mass. I didn’t know if I was supposed to dip and bless myself or wait until after i was baptised (I fear going up in flames for partaking in some act that is forbidden to non-Catholics ;))
What about the double “blessing” I have seen others do. Double thumb to the forhead, double to the upper lip?
Oh, mass was really nice btw. I felt really empowered and close to our Holy Mother.
