A Wheelbarrow Question?

A Wheelbarrow Question?

My parish priest shared a story at the beginning of his homily last week that really struck me and has stayed with me.  That’s usually a sign that a blog might be brewing!  The story goes: “A man was getting ready to tightrope walk across Niagara Falls, pushing a wheelbarrow.  He asked how many believed he could do it.  No…
