3.10 Zašto ponavljamo uvijek iste molitve?
Često molimo ponavljajući postojeću molitvu. To su tzv. usmene molitve ili formulirane molitve. To može izgledati vrlo dosadno, ali moliti nije isto što i intonirati riječi.
Molitva je nešto što činite svojim srcem. Moć usmene molitve je i u njezinu ponavljanju. Budući da riječi već znamo, u srcu i umovima možemo biti potpuno s Isusom. #TwGOD aplikacija sadrži neke lijepe molitve.

The Wisdom of the Church
What is vocal prayer?
In the first place, prayer is lifting the heart to God. And yet Jesus himself taught his disciples to pray with words. With the Our Father he left us the perfect vocal prayer as his testament to show how we should pray.
While praying we should not try to think pious thoughts. We should express what is in our hearts and offer it to God as complaint, petition, praise, and thanks. Often it is the great vocal prayers—the Psalms and hymns of Sacred Scripture, the Our Father, the Hail Mary—that direct us to the true substance of prayer and lead to a kind of free, interior prayer. [Youcat 501]
This is what the Popes say
Meditation on the mysteries of Christ is proposed in the Rosary by means of a method designed to assist in their assimilation. It is a method based on repetition. This applies above all to the Hail Mary, repeated ten times in each mystery. If this repetition is considered superficially, there could be a temptation to see the Rosary as a dry and boring exercise. It is quite another thing, however, when the Rosary is thought of as an outpouring of that love which tirelessly returns to the person loved with expressions similar in their content but ever fresh in terms of the feeling pervading them. [Pope John Paul II, Rosarium Virginis Mariae, n. 26]
