Barbecue with Bishop Emeritus Skylstad
The Language of Pope Francis……Some endearing terms we can use in our own lives
Bishop Emeritus William Skylstad
Since his election as pope, Pope Francis is more often than not on the tv news, or on the Internet, and his diction is unmistakeable. Tune in when you attend Bishop Skylstad's BBQ and hear how we can adopt something from Pope Francis' spirit!
