Can anyone help me to write a thank you to a priest in Spanish?


#1

Hi,

Our parish priest just gave my son a gift and I want him to write him a thank you note in Spanish. He says he wants it to say, "Thank you for the beautiful blanket. I love you."

I am realizing that I have no idea how to translate, "I love you" when it is addressed by a child to a priest- can anyone help?

Sure. Is the blanket like a bed covering or more of a throw or a quilt? Signing off with "Con mucho amor’ (With much love) may be the way to express “I love you” How close is the priest to the family?

It's a fuzzy kind of blanket with Our Lady of Guadalupe on it.

The priest knows my son (age 4) pretty well, and they talk a little before or after Mass each week. This priest is special to my son, but our family doesn't have a relationship with him outside of church.

I hope you don't mind but Spanish is my first language and there are is a minor error in the translation.

Imagen takes the feminine article, it's not as easy to know because the word does not end in a or o. Spanish lesson over lol!
