Since there are 15 decades of the Rosary, does that mean it takes 150 years to pray ?

    It takes about an hour to say a 15-decade rosary in English with the preamble and closing prayers. Saying it in Latin takes a bit longer but is far more powerful and thus preferable if one knows the prayers in Latin.

    The 3rd definition of the word "decade" is: a group, set, or series of ten. That is according to dictionary.com. Usually takes me around 15 minutes.

    15 minutes, 15 years.... it won't matter.

    Hand-mumbling has been studied for

    decades and it has been PROVEN to be

    nothing but a colossal waste of time.
