The Handmade of the Lord


Had my students learn by heart the Angelus.  When we got to the line that is suppose to read, "I am the handmaid of the Lord." Many of the students spelled "handmaid" h-a-n-d-m-a-d-e.  Did these kids every learn homophones in grammar school?

My bet is they weren't introduced to the concept of a handmaiden-- or even a "maid" outside of the "sexy, French" area.
