God said, &quot;Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you and you will feel your angel's love and be very happy.&quot;Again the child asked, &quot;And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me if I don't know the language?&quot; God said, &quot;Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel will teach you how to speak.&quot;  &quot;And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?&quot;  God said, &quot;Your angel will place your hands together and will teach you how to pray.&quot; Who will protect me?&quot;  God said, &quot;Your angel will defend you even if it means risking its life.&quot;  &quot;But 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.&quot;      At that moment there was much peace in Heaven, but voices from Earth could be heard and the child hurriedly asked, &quot;God, if I am to leave now, please tell me my angel's name.&quot;                                                                 </li></ul><ul><li>God said, you will simply call her, &quot;Mom.&quot; </li></ul>
