—Phyllis Tickle, founder of religion department, *Publishers Weekly** and 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*
