I have begun a new research project on the use of the “Rosary” in the Orthodox Church. I use that term “Rosary” to appeal to a larger audience. For the Orthodox it would simply be called prayer rope or komboskini in Greek, Tchotki in Russian, matanii in Romanian. Very interesting stuff out there in the web. In searching around I found this great quote from St. Seraphim of Sarov.
Acquire the spirit of peace, and a thousand souls will be converted around you!
I think this is like the greatest thing I have ever heard, save the Gospel of course. We all need to acquire the spirit of peace.
