An elderly Brazilian woman, who has been a devotee and praying every day to a statue of Saint Anthony, got surprised after mistakenly praying to Elrond, an elf from ‘The Lord of the Rings’ movie.

Gabriela searched the figure online for the figure and discovered it wasn’t listed under ‘Saint Anthony’, it was in fact listed under ‘Elrond’.
Gabriela took to Facebook and posted images of the ‘Elrond’ figurine.
The caption says: My daughter’s great-grandmother prays to this figure of Saint Anthony every day, but looking more closely…’,
