The diocese will continue its focus on the Year of Mercy with a lecture by Catholic author, TV and radio host Mike Aquilina Nov. 12 at 7 p.m. in the St. Joseph Chapel at the Bishop Connare Center.
Aquilina, author of more than 50 books on Catholic history, doctrine and devotion, will discuss "Making Mercy Accessible: Pope John Paul II and the Apostolate of Confession."
The lecture, which is being sponsored by the Diocesan Heritage Center, is being held in conjunction with the center's two current exhibits: Jesus, the Merciful Face of the Father and Rich in Mercy: The Life of St. John Paul II.
Aquilina has co-authored works with Cardinal Donald W. Wuerl, archbishop of Washington, theologian Scott Hahn, composer John Michael Talbot and hall of fame musician Dion.
Aquilina, who lives in Bridgeville with his wife, Terri, is a frequent guest on Catholic radio and appears weekly on Sirius radio's "Sonrise Morning Show." He has hosted 10 series on EWTN and two documentaries on early Christianity.
