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?

That was my initial thought too.  To make Eastern Catholic practices a habit, I think the Roman rite Catholic should first be advised about this by their priest or confessor.

I think it is safe to say the Rosary is objectively more efficacious

It's not more efficacious if we never pray it, right? I have always had a difficult time trying to meditate on mysteries and recite the Aves at the same time. And I'm a cradle Catholic now in my late 50s. That's why the idea of a chaplet or chotki, paying strict attention to the words of the Jesus prayer, without imagining anything except the presence of the Lord, appeals to me. I have always been Christ centered. I have always been devoted to the Bible. Usually, instead of saying the rosary, I simply read the "mystery parts" right out of the Bible. Lectio divina. I can't see how the rosary is meditation in the useful sense. I always "zone out" about the second or third decade, and end up discarding it.

And what's this talk about schismatic sacramentals? Reminds me of the time someone posted a thread about an Orthodox monastery where the monks made and sold black tea.. and someone called it "schismatic black tea." lol Tea is tea. And a prayer tool is a prayer tool. And what makes a prayer tool efficacious is the pray-er. Finally, I don't feel the need to ask anyone's permission to pray the chotki. After all, it was an ordained Catholic deacon who just gave it to me.
