Resources: Father Leo Clifford Reflections

Father Leo Clifford

Unable to sleep early one morning several years ago, I decided to listen to EWTN. Tucked between programs was a reflection by Father Leo Clifford, OFM. The intro music sounded like it went with a soap opera or maybe something Vincent Price might have used. When Father began to speak, his style of oration felt formal and aristocratic. The whole thing sounded a bit bizarre. On the other hand, I had nothing better to do so I listened.

Putting aside my initial reaction, I found Fr. Clifford’s reflection to be surprisingly (considering my expectations) good. I, along with many others, have become very fond of his brief (under 10 minute) reflections. They make me think, draw connections I had not made before and learn. When I listen to them now, I often play them twice to get the most out of them. They are treasures.

The music and oration that was at first a bit off-putting, now seems appropriate for such excellent, serious topics masterfully understood and presented. Father died one year ago (February 16, 2012) but this portion of his work lives on. EWTN offers both audio CDs and DVD videos on their website. They also offer (for personal use) MP3 audio files for download. For your convenience, they are linked below via an audio player.

  1. I have never heard of this priest before. The topics look inviting. I plan to sample a few. Lately I have been engaging with some Evangelical cousins of mine, former Catholics, about Jesus’ presence in the Holy Eucharist. I have basically asked them whether or not they miss receiving Jesus in Holy Communion. The answer seems to be no. Maybe I’ll find some materials from Fr. Leo that will help me with this dialogue.

    I love Father Leo Clifford”s Reflections. I listen to them every morning, right after I finish reading the scriptures. His reading are very uplifting. I had recently found out. That Father Clifford had passed on. Now I conclude my prayers with him.
