Do other faiths have this issue? And what can we do to change it in ours?
Almost every parish I’ve visited or belonged to, speeds as quickly through the prayers as possible. It’s almost impossible to understand each word, let alone feel it. Why? After my amazing experience with the Holy Spirit years ago, I’ve wanted to taste, feel, every word of each prayer we say, whether alone or during Mass.
If I say the Rosary silently before Mass, anyone else (like my husband) who starts at the same time, or even after me, is at least 1, if not 2, mysteries ahead of me. It doesn’t bother ME that I’m slower in praying; I just don’t understand the need to rush through them. Might as well be singing the ABCs. I sometimes use the Android app (Rosary Player) and it moves fairly quickly, but not as rushed as some others. On Laudate, it depends on the podcast, but they always move quicker than I can keep up. I’m not ‘slow’ in mind or speech generally.
By no means am I putting down anyone that speeds through a prayer; many probably don’t realize they are doing it. I just think it honors Him more to think about our prayers as we say them.
