Prayers like you've never heard...

My kids have a knack for mispronunciation. Take the Guardian Angel prayer for instance. I'll bet you didn't know that it ended,

Be at my side,
To light and guard,
To drool and guide.

This is how Gabriel recited it today.

Then the there was the St. Michael the Archangel prayer. In this case Sebastian insists that it was I who heard him incorrectly, but I am quite certain I heard him say,

Be our protection against the fiery snails of the Devil.

He says that he said "wiles and snares", but I don't believe my hearing is that far gone. And maybe we actually do need protection from fiery snails.

  1. Makes perfect sense to me. The Guardian Angel will drool on the firey snails! LOL!
