You better check figure you pray before praying

It’s said that everyone needs something to believe in, and in this case, a great-granny from Brazil has been praying to a Lord Of The Rings figurine for years, mistakenly believing it to be Saint Anthony.

Axar.az reports citing to Buzzfeed that, the hilarious discovery was made after her relative, Gabriela Brandão, a freelance makeup artist from Florianópolis, took a look at her great-granny’s figurine and noticed that something wasn’t quite right

Because it’s 2016, Gabriela used Google to find out whether she was wrong, and instead of finding “Saint Anthony”, she found “Elrond”. Yes, Elrond from Lord Of The Rings. Elrond, the half-elven Lord of Rivendell.

Before the reveal was made to a confused great-granny, Gabriela uploaded these pictures to with the captions “My daughter’s great-grandmother prays to this figure of Saint Anthony every day, but looking more closely…”

Gabriela told Buzzfeed: “We tried to explain right away but she didn’t understand at first.”

You’ll be pleased to know that Elrond has been replaced by a figurine of Saint Anthony proper, and great-granny is praying away happily once again.

Unsurprisingly, Gabriela’s post was shared over 4,000 times.

When Gabriela came to visit her great-granny she noticed something weird about her statue.

A quick Google search revealed that instead of Saint Anthony she was praying to Elrond.

“We tried to explain right away but she didn’t understand at first,” her great-granddaughter said.

In her defence, the two of them do look alike and her prayers have probably been heard either way.
