  2. Thanks, Patrick. I'm glad you're using your rope, and I hope you remember my family and I in your prayers when you do so. :) I'll look forward to hearing from you.

  3. The two 100-knot prayer ropes arrived in record time. Fr. Joseph and I are delighted with the workmanship, quality of materials and prayerful attentiveness to detail that are in evidence in your chotkis. I cannot recommend your prayer ropes too highly and look forward to "many blessed years" in their use to the glory of The Holy Name of Jesus. Christ IS Risen!
    With Sincerest Gratitude,

  4. Richard,

    I'm glad they arrived safely and that you and Fr. Joseph are so pleased. Please remember this poor sinner and his family in your prayers whenever you use the rope. :)

  5. May I ask, what are your prayer ropes made from?

    1. Hello John,

      Thanks for your inquiry. I currently make my prayer ropes from a nylon-satin material commonly known as rattail. It's quite common for folks to make ropes out of this material. I like using it because it's very sturdy and has a great feel in one's fingers. Wool prayer ropes tend to wear out rather quickly, but the nylon-satin ropes tend to last for years. They also have a great visual appeal, especially when combined with proper beads.

      ICXC + NIKA,
      Phillip

    1. I'm always open to teaching folks how to make prayer ropes, as well as what little I know about Eastern/Byzantine spirituality and theology. As a matter of fact, I have some folks coming over in about 30 minutes that I will be teaching to make prayer ropes. :)

  7. Byzantine Bandit — I’m the one Phillip is referring to when he said he was preparing to give a prayer rope making lesson. My teenage son and I traveled all the way from Texas to D.C. to have Phillip teach us to make prayer ropes — and it was well worth the trip! Not only is he a master beadsman, but he is a master teacher as well. Thank you, Phillip, you are truly a beautiful soul!

  9. The silver, 100-knot prayer rope I ordered arrived very quickly (within 3 days). It looks beautiful, and is very well made. It is definitely worth the price, and I'm looking forward to using it for many years to come.

  11. I have a couple of questions.

    1: Is the gold rope bright and shiny or more of an antique hue?

    2: Would you ever make a rope without the additional wooden beads?


    Regards

    1. Hi Tory,

      The gold ropes have more of an antique hue to them. I have some extra gold cord if you'd like to order one. :)

      Also, I've done a good number of ropes without beads. I'd be more than happy to do one for you as well.

  13. Hey Phillip,
    Got my chotki in the mail several days ago! Very well made. As a Latin rite Catholic with strong Byzantine leanings, I definitely appreciate the fine work you're doing.

  16. I'm new to Eastern Catholicism, and am unclear how the beads are used. Is this part of Theosis?

    Forgive my ignorance :oP
