Former Vice President Joe Biden has revealed that he wears Rosary beads ever since his son Beau died of brain cancer, citing his belief that it gives them something of a connection.
“I am a practising Catholic. Beau was a devout Catholic as well,” Biden told anchor Megyn Kelly. “Both of us found solace in the elements of the church. It is almost like meditation for us.”
“It’s not about religion, per se,” he added, explaining the reason he wears the beads. “It’s about the connection. It makes me feel good. I know he’s with me, just touching it.”
Joseph “Beau” Biden III died at the age of 46 after a two-year battle with brain cancer. He had served as Delaware’s attorney general from 2007 to 2015 and had planned to run for governor of Delaware in 2016.
