We invite you to listen and subscribe to our two podcasts, “Clouds and Sun” and “Franciscan Lectio.”


“Clouds and Sun”

Take some time with these reflections by Fr. Dan Riley, ofm, about the canvas of life at Mt. Irenaeus and elsewhere.


“Franciscan Lectio”

Fr. Dan Riley, ofm, invites us into the world of Franciscan Lectio, a companion podcast to his book.

About These Podcasts

Fr. Dan has recorded the “Clouds and Sun” podcasts since 2011 from the quiet of the Mountain to the shores of California; from the Finger Lakes to New Mexico; from Las Vegas to Florida.

In 2023, the “Franciscan Lectio” podcast began as a companion to Fr. Dan’s book

Our podcasts are enhanced through music (used with permission) by Fr. Cyprian Consiglio, Kim & Reggie Harris, and John Michael Talbot. Greg Licamele, a Mountain trustee, produces the episodes. 

We invite you to be persistent with your prayer life and we hope these reflections help you on your journey! Listen while on a run or driving. While sitting peacefully in your home. Listen with a group. Share this ministry with others. Leave a review!
