Bill, the current version of the Glorious mysteries has the perfect pace.
Bill, you're only just a tad too fast (I think Melissa is too slow!). Since the average rosary without Scripture takes about 17-20 minutes, to do a rosary with Scripture for each Hail Mary, and take only 21 minutes, seems clearly too fast. I can't even talk that fast, and I don't want to get into the habit of praying the rosary this fast. But if it were slowed down just a bit -- just a little bit -- I think it might satisfy those who want to slow down without being as slow as Melissa's.
I think the way to do this is to simply insert very brief but distinct pauses in the usual places, for example:
Instead of saying "Hail Mary full of grace the Lord is with thee blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus," It could be said "Hail Mary (pause), full of grace (pause), the Lord is with thee (pause). Blessed art thou among women (pause), and blessed is the fruit of thy womb (very brief pause), Jesus (pause).
Other than speed issues, I love what you both are doing! Thank you!
