Being a convert, I was not aware of this practice. I have read up on this and what a lovely peasceful way to help keep Christ in your heart.

Our ladies guild makes prayer quilts these would be a nice idea to inclyude with the quilts. I think I will approach the guild to see if they would like for me to make some of these so they can present them along with the quilts.


Thank you for this topic. What a blessing!

For your consideration....we read on this chotkis.com

"....we would never consider making a chotki from Rudraksha beads, as they are traditionally used for Hindu malas, and to use such a bead in a Chotki is an insult to the Eastern Churches. Instead, as Byzantine Catholics ourselves, we choose materials and colors suited to the cultural and religious heritages of the Eastern Catholic and Eastern Orthodox peoples. "

     Admittedly, we do not know the standards for Roman Catholics to go outside of their faith tradition to adapt the practices of the eastern churches. This might be something we would want to ask a priest about....
