Orthodox Prayer Ropes

Prayer ropes (komboskini in Greek, chotki in Russian) are used in saying the Prayer of the Heart also known as the Jesus Prayer. They are usually made of black yarn, marked off by wooden or glass beads, which may be of a variety of colors.
 

Beeswax Candles

The pure wax extracted by virgin bees from flowers symbolizes the pure flesh of Christ received from His Virgin Mother, the wick signifies the soul of Christ, and the flame represents His divinity which absorbs and dominates both. Pure beeswax, like olive oil, wine, wheat, and other natural and pure substances, is as an essential element in the worship of the Orthodox Church.


 

Orthodox Incense

Incense has been used in religious worship from ancient times until the present day. It has been used in Christian worship since the earliest days of the Church. St. John writes of its use in Heaven: "And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angelís hand." — Revelation 8:4


 

Orthodox Liturgical Censers

Censers can be used to cense the icons in your home and combined with your prayers to rise like a sweet aroma before the throne of God. "Let my prayer be set forth before Thee as incense; the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice." — Psalm 140:2 – Septuagint
 

Self-lite Charcoal

Self-lite charcoal briquette has an unusual "star saucer" shape especially designed for liturgical use. It holds the incense in place and prevents it from rolling off during censing.

Orthodox Vigil Lamps

Our faith is light. Christ said: I am the light of the world (John 8:12). The light of the vigil lamp reminds us of that light by which Christ illumines our souls. Vigil Lamps remind us of the radiant character of the saint before whose icon we light the vigil lamp, for saints are called sons of light (John 12,36; Luke 16,8). They remind us to zealously try to fulfill the commandments of the Savior: "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works" (Matthew 5,16). And Vigil Lamps remind us that before anything else the Creator of the world created light, and after that everything else in order: And God said, let there be light: and there was light (Genesis 1,3). And it must be so also at the beginning of our spiritual life, so that before anything else the light of Christ's truth would shine within us. From this light of Christ's truth subsequently every good deed is created, springs up and grows in us.
