  • Olive wood Jesus beads
  • Attractive case with Jerusalem Cross
  • Traditional devotional tool
  • Nicely packaged for gift-giving

A strand of 100 wooden beads, the Jesus Beads are a devotional tool honoring the name of Jesus and imploring the mercy of God. Marked with a wooden Jerusalem cross, the beads may be tucked in a stamped black pouch (included) for protected transport and storage. The beads and cross are handcrafted using the pruned branches of the olive trees growing on the hills of Bethlehem and Jerusalem. 

A printed card includes a brief explanation and history: Jesus Beads originated in the tradition of the Orthodox and Eastern Catholic Churches. Called a chotki, the strand may have as many as 100 beads or as few as 25. The chotki is traditionally used as a silent "breath prayer", with "Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God" prayed on inhalation and "have mercy on me, a sinner" prayed on exhalation. This is known as the Jesus Prayer, or the Prayer of the Heart, which invokes the Holy Name of Jesus and implores His divine mercy. (You can read about the "Jesus Prayer" in the Catechism of the Catholic Church, paragraphs 2665-2669.)

    Exactly what I was looking for. I don't know if I realized it came with the pouch but it's a fine addition.

    These beads are well-made, beautifully packaged (would make a great gift). I was very pleased with my purchase and look forward to beginning this practice.

    Great prayer

    I love that it is an easy prayer when you just want to be quiet, you just focus on Jesus and asking for mercy. I have also wore it as a necklace, it hangs on my wall when I am not using it, it looks great hanging on the wall.

    Jesus, what more can I say.

    I was anxiously awaiting the delivery of this product. I like to spend time in front of the Blessed Sacrament. These beads give me the opportunity to remember Jesus throughout the day and when I cannot get to a Tabernacle. Best Uses: Everyday praying; Cons: none; Pros: Easy to handle store
