Prayer Rope: Monks’ Handiwork
Following the centuries-long monastic tradition, the monks, especially those who live in the holy monasteries of Mount Athos, are engaged throughout the day with some work. In addition to their treatises, manual works mostly for the monastery, create handmade handiworks.
The most common and popular of these is the Prayer Rope. Even at the time of their rest, the monks do not stop working on their own handiwork. At the same time, they pray warmly for the salvation of their souls as well as for those who will use the prayer ropes they make.
The handmade monks’ prayer ropes consist of 33, 100 or 300 knots. Each knot is made of 9 smaller ones. The Prayer Rope is an important aid for the time of prayer. Counting one of its knots, the prayer says the short wish “Lord Jesus Christ mercy on me”. Thus, they remain concentrated in their prayer.
