My parents would also be happy to know that I would be supporting a Church and Catholic school by celebrating Mass each week with the children. They would be proud to know that I would serve God by speaking His word to all who will listen. My parents would be proud to see me up on the altar leading the celebration and offering the Body and Blood of Christ to the parishioners.

My parent's would be proud of my studies and efforts to become a priest. They know that it takes long hours and hard work to learn about God so that I will be able to teach His word to others. I would have to fully dedicate my life to my work and would have to make sacrifices.

The only thing that would make my parents uneasy about my choice is that I would not have any children. They want Grandchildren and would be disappointed if I could not have them because I was a priest. My parents would be a little bit sad if I did not have children.
