Welcome to what I like to think of as a spirituality smorgasbord I call Hearts on Fire.

The hearts of believers have caught fire ever since the disciples on the Road to Emmaus.  I hope to share poems, prayers, stories, scriptures, songs, humor and wisdom to kindle a spiritual spark inside the reader’s heart.  Hearts on Fire casts stones at nobody, encourages cooperation and tolerance  with people of faith everywhere, and promotes a positive agenda.

I have not been active of late for various reasons particularly moving to St. Leo’s in Inwood West Virginia. I hope to get back up to speed in the near future.


About Paul Wharton

I am a cradle Catholic, a native West Virginian, and a priest since April 24, 1982. Spiritual Direction has made a tremendous difference in my life and I encourage people to try it out. My motto is "Progress not perfection." I am grateful that God has done for me what I could not do for myself.

    This blog is full of gems. Thanks for sharing them with us! (I’m not familiar with the words “flotsam and jetsam” but I will look them up before you use them on a Lexulous game!).
