Child: “But tell me, here in , I don’t do anything else but sing and smile, and that’s enough for me to be happy. Will I be happy there?”

God: “Your will sing for you and will also smile for you every day. You will feel your ’s love and be happy.”

Child: “How am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me if I don’t know the language that men talk?”

God: “Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear.  With much patience and care, your angel will you how to .”

Child: “And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?”

God: “Your angel will place your hands together and will teach you how to pray.”

God: “Your angel will defend you, even if it means risking her own .”

Child: “But, I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore.”

God: “Your angel will always talk to you about me and will teach you the way to come back to me, even though I will always be next to you.”

At that moment there was much in Heaven, but voices from earth

The child, in a hurry, asked softly… “Oh God, if I am about to leave now, please tell me my angel’s name.”

God: “Your angel’s name is of no importance.  You will call your angel … Mommy.”
