Our Catholic Identity is found so uniquely held within the Heart of our Lord's Mother, Mary. Over the centuries She has given us the Rosary as form of Spiritual nourishment - feeding us if you will, with her "Spiritual Milk of Wisdom". The Little Friars and Little Nuns Meditated Rosary is a new and fresh way of praying with our "Mamma", intended on helping all those who pray it grow in their Faith regardless of the age of who prays it. Inspired by the community's founder, Friar Volantino, one stops during the prayer to reflect on the Word of God, the teachings of the Catholic Church and also meditations from the community to try to understand God's will and how to apply it to one's own life. With the words of St. Augustine: "Who sings prays twice", rather than saying 10, we sing 5 Hail Marys in order to make the whole experience more "digestible", making the total duration of this prayer (in its simplified form for children) about 45 minutes long.
