Is it lawful for one to take Communion after falling in the sin of lust, masturbation, and pornography? If not, what steps need to be taken to allow participation in the Mysteries without fear of condemnation?

One must first repent and confess sins of lust before partaking of the Holy Mystery of the Eucharist. This Holy Mystery is for the remission of sins. Thus, we must approach Jesus Christ in a worthily manner, which is with a repentant heart, in order to partake of His holy Body and precious Blood, admitting that we are unworthy sinners in need of His forgiveness, grace, and absolution. Do not hesitate or allow embarrassment to dictate your repentance and salvation.
