A Bead and a Prayer is one of the most accessible and downright delightful books I have ever read on prayer itself, not to mention being far and away the most informative about the making and use of prayer beads. Vincent has given us a veritable treasure trove of history, practical counsel, and, most important, loving instruction. –Phyllis Tickle, prolific author on religion/spirituality, including "The Divine Hours" series
A Bead and a Prayer engages our God-given senses of touch and sight to coax prayer from the head deep into the heart. A groundbreaking book even for those of us who don't have a clue how to string beads. Vincent's encouragement and instructions have convinced this novice-artist that even I can do it! This is a must-read for anyone on an intentional journey to God. -Linda Douty, Spiritual director, retreat leader, author of Praying in the Messiness of Life
