Re: Talking to my family about my Vocation?
My parents were not at all thrilled when I became Catholic or went into the priesthood. Actually they were not happy before that when I became a Protestant minister! It took time. Eventually when they saw I was happy and doing well they decided it was okay. There is no easy way to deal with this. Simply follow your vocational discernment and do what God calls you to do. Pray about it. Get good spiritual direction. And be patient. Give it lot's of time and they will come around. Do not be afraid.
