Condrey ,

Thought provoking and wonderful insightful.

I recently attended NCYC and had the pleasure of attending two of Father Leo’s talks. He was insightful and funny. I bought his cook book and started listening to his podcasts. Thanks for being a breath of fresh air in a world we need witness too.
God is always Great!

Father Leo is amazing!

I grew up with Father Leo when he was a young(er) priest and his Homilies still stick in my head after all these years. He connects language to the heart which lingers after Mass. I personally love his passion for food. After all, Jesus showed himself in real divine food and drink. Thank you Father Leo for all you've done and given us!

Please let the person talk! You interrupt constantly! So hard to listen to. The person you interview can never finish a thought without being interrupted.
