This week's question comes from contributor Nelly Guajardo and was originally posted on our Facebook page.
This week, as I was making lunch for my son he asked me, Mom how does one become a Priest and do Priests have other jobs?
That night my husband and I had a conversation with him about the question. He said, he is thinking maybe of becoming one when he grows up.
I told him he would know in his heart if that was his vocation and to pray. I am still a bit taken with his question and told him I would be praying for him. My son is 11, not sure what his future holds but for him to ask I guess the seed has been planted.
Wondering if any of your children have asked the same question?
