Two things about Nonna & Prayer:
1) God listens to Nonna
2) Nonna takes credit for anything she prays for which actually occurs…
My work-wife passed the bar (yay Elissa!). When I told Nonna the news…she responded “I knew it was gonna happen…I prayin to St. Anthony for her.”
Me: Well..that was very nice of you.
Nonna: When you pass on the bar it was because I pray on St. Anthony.
Me: Oh…so it wasn’t my studying for 14 hours a day?
Nonna: Studying don have nothing to do with it. You need anything you pray on St. Anthony. So tell Elissa to pray on St. Anthony.
Me: Well, Elissa is Jewish, so she probably won’t be praying to St. Anthony.
Nonna: Well…maybe you tell her that my prayers makin this come true and she think she might turn Catholic.
Nonna: St. Anthony is powerful. Like me.
Me: St. Nonna…Elissa is not going to “consider” being a Catholic because of St. Anthony.
Nonna: Some people do…you should tell her…Jesus door is always open.
Me: That is very nice of you…but again, she is Jewish.
Nonna: She can pray on St. Anthony anyway.
Me: Ok, I’ll tell her.
Nonna: I pray on St. Anthony for you…so you no become mean to your Nonna anymore.
Guess some of her prayers go unanswered 😉
