She taught us how to pray

"We prayed the Rosary, whilst seeing her; and she prayed with us to teach us how to pray it well."

We would love to have heard Our Lady praying the Our Father and the Glory Be with the visionaries… Although she also prayed the Hail Mary, it was only to teach them, and us, how to pray correctly. She wanted to teach us that we become accustomed to praying quickly without pronouncing, almost mechanically. We are in need of being taught that we shouldn't speak to heaven in such a way. Later on, when the girls had learned how to pray the Hail Mary, Our Lady only recited the Glory Be with them. "The Blessed Virgin taught us how to pray the litanies and the mysteries of the rosary that we didn't know. She only prayed the Glory Be; although to begin with she also prayed other prayers, but it was to teach us."
