St. Joseph and Our World: Bestselling Author Mike Aquilina on Marking Father’s Day with the Foster Father of Jesus

Last December, Pope Francis announced 2021 would be a year dedicated to St. Joseph, because we need him. We need his example and intercession for restoring a reverence for the nobility and necessity of fatherhood and for learning again how to live in family and community. Join us for a conversation with Mike Aquilina, author of the new book St. Joseph and His World,  in discussion with Kathryn Jean Lopez.
