Daybreak also traveled to The Sanctuary of Divine Mercy in Krakow, Poland where interviews and footage were videotaped regarding the life of Saint Faustina. The crew also traveled to the U. S. National Shrine of Divine Mercy in Stockbridge, Massachusetts to follow the story of how the veneration of Saint Faustina and The Divine Mercy Message has spread worldwide.

Monsignor Charles Murphy will also be interviewed on This is the Day. He is the author of the book “The Spirituality of Fasting”. His book draws on sources ancient and current—from Augustine to Michael Pollan—to consider how fasting informs the relationships between creator/creature, body/soul, and rich/poor.
Pope Benedict had urged that the value and meaning of fasting needed to be "rediscovered and encouraged again in our day," The Spirituality of Fasting is meant for average Catholics and also for small groups, parish retreats, homily preparation, and recommended Lenten reading lists.
Monsignor Charles M. Murphy is the director of the Permanent Diaconate for the Diocese of Portland, Maine. Previously he served his diocese as director of education and has pastored four different parishes. He was rector of the North American College in Rome and holds a doctorate from the Pontifical Gregorian University there. He is the author of several scholarly articles and books, including Belonging to God: A Personal Training Guide for the Deeper Catholic Spiritual Life.
