"With great pleasure I recommend Prayerbreaks as an online resource. I have known Michael and Mary Poirier - and their work - for many, many years. Materials offered on this website are in line with the doctrine of our Church, the music is beautiful, and the meditations, stories, and testimonies inspire people of all ages. Holy Family Apostolate is solidly Catholic and will only increase in value as new materials are added each month."
