Red face Death of Father Leo Clifford

I was just watching REFLECTIONS WITH FATHER LEO CLIFFORD on EWTN
and after the segment ended they announced that he died this morning.

I loved him SO much!
He was very instrumental in my conversion.

That voice, that always spoke such beautiful words of encouragement,
will ring in my ears and live in my heart forever!


I love you Father Leo!

May the Lord welcome you into the light of His Face
and wrap you in His loving embrace,
and may you rest in ETERNAL PEACE
oh good, and faithful servant of Our Lord.

I am so very sad to hear this. I, too, loved him very much and was always inspired by his "ferverinos" on EWTN.

God reward you for posting this. I will pray for the repose of his soul - should he have need of such prayers. If not, Our Lord can use them for someone else.

EWTN announced this news of Father's death last Friday after his reflections, so he did not pass this morning, but last week some time. May he rest in God's peace and the eternal joy of His presence.

Sirach, thank you. Do you know the exact date he died so that I may record it in my book properly?

I tried to find some information on the internet, but absolutely nothing came up that he even died.

The link below has the proper information. I apologize for the confusion. He did NOT die this morning, he was laid to rest today.

Eternal rest grant unto Father Clifford! May his soul rest in peace!
