Living Bread Radio was created in response to the Second Vatican Council’s call for the laity to evangelize. It also responds to the call of Pope John Paul II for a New Evangelization and a New Springtime for the Church, as it is using a mainstream tool – the radio – to evangelize. I am very impressed with how they have approached this app, their response to the New Evangelization is fantastic! The radio station is located in Ohio and it started out as a small local transmission. It has grown from having only local listeners in the beginning to now having listeners all over the world. Their goal with this app is to make the deep spiritual content, that they both create and license from larger production resources, available to their listeners. Catholic radio lives on!
What Can You Listen To?
Their app connects you with a live feed, as well as, podcasts focused around the daily readings. The live listening experience is great and includes shows such as:
- The Best of the Journey Home
- Mornings with Mother
- Women of Grace
- Catholic Answers
- The Son Rise Morning Show
- Morning Glory
- Catholic Connection
Also available throughout the day are Daily Prayers:
- The Chaplet of Devine Mercy
- The Holy Rosary

Who is Living Bread Radio?
As described in their app, the Mission of the Living Bread Radio Network is to faithfully broadcast the message of Jesus Christ through radio. Their programming enlightens and educates listeners to the depth and richness of the Catholic Faith, encouraging and inspiring those who are already Catholic to learn more about the Faith and to pass on those teachings to their children. The Network also fosters and promotes devotion to Mary and it also supports and defends the sanctity of every human life from conception until natural death. All programming and content is loyal to the teachings of the Magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church. It is so great to know that all the content I’m listening to, and exposing my kids to, is solidly rooted in the teachings of the Church.
Why Would You Listen to It?
Living Bread Radio offers its listeners a wide variety of really solid Catholic Content. The radio format is great because it isn’t a stream of the same content over and over. It’s unique and a great way to expand your knowledge and your faith. Like I mentioned earlier, I live in an area that doesn’t have a Catholic radio station, so all of my Catholic radio has to come from other sources. This has become one of my go to sources. The app is small and doesn’t take up a lot of space on the device you choose to use. I really encourage you to download it and try it out.
Best Of All
Their radio app follows the same format as a few others we have reviewed and it’s simple to use, just press play. However, unlike some of the other radio apps out there, this Catholic Radio app is available for both Android and Apple devices! This makes it accessible to just about anybody! I was scanning the reviews on this app and came across this one that I think really exemplifies the purpose of this app…
Keep up the good work!! I help with RCIA so the programs help me present the faith to new comers and strengthens my understanding of it. It is my “companion” on the road and on the journey through life. – Arlene, Canton
Living Bread Radio hits the mark, I’m impressed. Radio is hard to do well, and I would say that Catholic Radio is probably at least twice as difficult to do well! I’m happy to say that this product has fulfilled their mission and I hope you tap into it. Happy Listening!
