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."

The miracle of the Holy Fire! Each year on Orthodox Holy Saturday, the Patriarch of Jerusalem enters the altar of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and "prays with tears for the sins of the people done in ignorance, raiding his hands on high, doing this three times; those around him do the same thing." A flame ignites in a niche by God's will. The Patriarch lights a candle from it, and the Deacons light additional candles from the Patriarchs. The fire is passed to all. Christ is Risen!
