An Orthodox prayer rope. A monk from Mount Athos wrote: "This prayer rope is knotted from wool, that is, it has been sheared from a sheep, a reminder that we are rational sheep of the Good Shepherd, Christ the Lord, & also a reminder of the Lamb of God Who takes away the sins of the world. The cross like wise speaks to us of this sacrifice & victory of life over death, of humility over pride, of self-sacrifice over selfishness, of light overdarkness."
