Description

MOUNT ATHOS LEATHER PRAYER ROPE WITH METAL CROSS AND WOODEN BEADS

Historically, the prayer rope would typically have 100 knots.

There is normally a knotted cross where the prayer rope is joined together to form a loop, and a few beads at certain intervals between the knots (usually every 10 or 25 knots) for ease in counting.

Longer prayer ropes frequently have a tassel at the end of the cross; its purpose is to dry the tears shed due to heartfelt compunction for one’s sins.

The tassel can also be said to represent the glory of the Heavenly Kingdom, which one can only enter through the Cross.

The leather rosary from Mount Athos consists of seven meters leather cord, shaped in knots for our prayer. The knots end in a metal cross with the crucified Christ. Seven black wooden beads stand between the five tens of knots.
