John Denver got it right... when you're in the "Wild & Wonderful" mountains of West Virginia, you get the sense that it truly is "Almost Heaven." In this homily upon my return to Saints John & Paul from our mission trip into the poverty of that Appalachian community, I try to bring home the fact that prayer is our lifeline out of tragic circumstances to Heaven, and to the One who created us to be loved. —Padre Jay
