There isn't?  Where does the Catholic Faith say it's okay to use non-Catholic/schismatic sacramentals, etc?

I believe the Jesus Prayer is Eastern Catholic, but not sure the Prayer Rope is???

tim, what????

If there is an Eastern Catholic connection, then great, but my first reaction to this was why would we pray that Rope instead of the Rosary?

The use of a Chotki goes back to the ancient monastic tradition in the Church, either during or shortly after the time of the Desert Fathers.  Originally it was used for the recitation of Psalm 70-1 over and over again. which is one of the main ways monks fulfilled the command to "pray always" when they were working, or otherwise in between hours of the Divine Office.  Later, the Eastern Tradition developed this into what today is known as the Jesus Prayer.  St. John Cassian discusses this in his writings on the monastic tradition. 

While I agree that the Rosary is a wonderful and edifying prayer, creating some sort of dichotomy between use of the Rosary and a Chotki seems like a bad idea to me.  The Church does not regulate private devotions or private prayer in general.  Sacramentals are not sacraments, and different people are drawn to different devotions and prayer traditions.  We have a dozens of different spiritual traditions in the Church for a reason (Dominicans don't pray exactly the same way as Franciscans, who don't pray exactly the same way as Benedictines, etc.). 

In addition, our Holy Father Pope Francis is frequently seen with one around his wrist. 

There is a group of wonderful Cistercian Nuns who make Chotki as part of their monastery crafts.
