Brazilian Colloquialisms, Sayings, and Slang #36

Tentando ensinar Pai Nosso ao vigário - Trying to teach Our Father to the priest

Someone who’s “trying to teach Our Father to the priest” is someone who’s trying to teach something to someone who’s already an expert - NOT “preaching to the choir.”

Vigário is another name for a priest (the Portuguese word for vicar)
