Yesterday I Blessed the Mission Gift Baskets at St. Joseph Hospital which will be given to families in need this Christmas. For the past 25 years each department adopts families and purchases gifts. True Christmas Spirit! #courageouslyliving @DioStPete

A great visit with the students at St. Peter Claver School in Tampa this morning. We celebrated Mass and had a Q&A afterward. Thanks for the beautiful Christmas gifts! #catholiceducation #courageouslyliving @DioStPete
