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.

Though Father Richard Simon jokingly refers to himself as “Father Know-It-All”, after listening to just one episode of Father Simon Says, you just might be convinced he truly does know it all.  Join Father as he opens each show with a thorough examination of the daily Scripture readings - helping us make connections between Old and New Testament and develop a better appreciation of God’s Word as we journey together through the liturgical year.  Consider it your daily bible study on the radio. Then Father Simon opens the phones and entertains your questions on a wide variety of topics.  In fact, Father Simon Says is the first of three consecutive hours when Relevant Radio gives you direct access to a Catholic priest to ask questions about your faith and the Church.   So join the conversation, ask, learn…and be sure to listen for Father’s Word of the Day to sharpen your vocabulary.  If you wish to grow in faith and become a smarter Catholic, then you should listen to what Father Simon Says!
