Our Daily Bread Mission Statement
Our Daily Bread is a 1/2 hour cooking show which brings a Catholic presence to the secular TV markets in the eight counties of Western New York, and Southern Ontario.
When Jesus fed the crowds… when He blessed the bread and gave it to his disciples… when He shared a meal with his apostles after his resurrection… all instances where there was a special sence of God’s power… as food was made to be more than just a meal. Hosted by Fr. Paul D. Seil, Our Daily Bread follows Jesus’ example by inviting people into his kitchen and sharing food, fellowship and faith.
Much more than an ordinary secular cooking show, Our Daily Bread seeks to fulfill a significant part of the Church’s mission to evangelize by drawing people together over simple recipes to discuss significant matters in human experience. While fostering gospel values in our society Daybreak TV Productions, which produces Our Daily Bread, promotes the dignity of the human person, and a respect for the gift of life, which is found in the simply profound and the profoundly simple.
John Paul II wrote in an Encyclical Letter, “Every person has the right to hear the ‘Good News’ of the God who reveals and gives himself in Christ, so that each one can live out in its fullness his or her proper calling.”
Our Daily Bread, uses television as an evangelization tool aimed at all of humanity. Our Daily Bread is committed to evangelization efforts, which uses the best of what modern technology can offer; committed to new evangelization – “new in methods, new in expression and new in ador.” (John Paul II, Ecclesia, in America, 9).
