Grandmother Accidentally Prays To ‘Lord of the Rings’ Doll Instead of Saint

A Brazilian discovered something startling and hilarious about her grandmother two weeks ago: The older woman had been praying to a small Lord of the Rings figurine, mistakenly believing it to be a statue of Saint Anthony, the patron saint of the poor.

Gabriela Brandao, a makeup artist from Florianapolis, shared photos of her discovery on Facebook.

“My daughter’s great grandmother prays to this figure of San Antonio every day, but looking closer…” she wrote in Portuguese before linking to a photo of the half-elf character Elrond from the Lord of the Rings on eBay.

The post has since been shared thousands of times. She later told BuzzFeed about the experience of her post going viral.

“We tried to explain right away but she didn’t understand at first,” Brandão said. “The next day we explained again and she understood and we got her a new figure of Saint Anthony.”

“I never expected any of this to happen, it’s crazy,” she added. “But it’s the funniest thing that ever happened to me.”
