Behind the project is the International Prayer Network of the Pope. According to its leader, the Jesuit Frederic Fornos, young people with the smart rosary and the app should, among other things, more easily learn the “traditional prayer to the Blessed Virgin Mary”. This reports “Domradio.de”. The aim is also that young people pray more for peace in the world.
