I read in a closed discussion that the RC church doesn't approve of Non-Catholics coming forward for a blessing during communion. Some churches allow this but it isn't something the church in general wants to encourage. Is this accurate? My daughter converted several years ago. When we attend Mass with her, I do not go up for a blessing. I do not intend to go up for a blessing at her wedding. She takes this as a sign of disapproval. While I was very upset and still have issue with her conversion, I am doing it for my own set of beliefs. We are a strongly religious family, and she was raised going to church. I would like to be able to explain to her that the Catholic church wouldn't want me to go up for a blessing either. To be clear, her conversion has in no way changed my love for her or my willingness to attend her wedding - I told her this when she converted long before she met her fiance. She is an adult and has to make her own decisions. I feel though she needs to respect my decisions too when it comes to how I worship.
