Hello everyone. I am currently discerning as to wether I have a vocation to the Jesuits or Missionaries of Charity Brothers or Priests. I feel that I am close to making a decision, but am not quite sure yet. Anyways I have some reservations. My parents agree with the death penalty, my father is not very compassionate towards the poor (like I am), and they have somewhat of a distaste for nuns and other religious, sometimes making fun of them. Should I join regardless of what they think?
I am honestly to the point where I will join regardless of what they think. Even if it means leaving them on a bad note, my life will be empty if I do not follow my call from God. I need to serve the poor. I also want to fight poverty through education. I’m just very confused.
