i have a question about the sacraments and conversion-
so i know i experienced a huge conversion a few years ago. but i had been baptised, had communion and confirmation etc. when i was a child.
is it harder for people who dont have the sacraments to convert even if people are praying for them?
sometimes i wonder- did God arrange for me to be raised Catholic bc i was such a bad person he knew i needed that, while those who are not raised with religion are not as bad sinners so they dont need as much grace?

All else being equal, the sacraments do provide an advantage in conversion.

I don't think there's much to be gained in trying to figure out God's approach to you. Just be grateful He brought you the grace of conversion, however and whyever He did it how He did.

i'm really thinking about how they say everyone receives sufficient grace... but i am worried about those who don't have the sacraments.

Remember that worry is useless, and doesn't help at all. Pray instead! God knows what He is about.
