Daybreak™ is a fresh, upbeat approach to morning prayer and devotions. Host Paul Sadek offers daily spiritual reflections to assist you as your day begins, including the Office of Readings, Morning Prayer, a teaching from the Holy Father, and more. The program also features readings from the series In Conversation With God by author Francis Fernandez-Carvajal, which makes generous use of the writings of our great saints.  These daily meditations on themes taken from the Mass readings for that day and the liturgical season will give listeners an inspirational start to their day.
