Aspects of Holiness - 1) finding center, 2) a sinner and 3) your life is not about you.

Fr. Barron speaking at Magnificat Day 2014 on "Luminous Images of Holiness." This talk, delivered on All Saints' Day, uses the beautiful windows in the new St. John Paul II Chapel at Mundelein Seminary to highlight the resplendence of holiness.
Note: Fr. Barron's lecture begins at 29:32 in the video above.

The lives reflected on in the talk have 3 consistent themes of holiness: finding the center, knowing you are a sinner and realizing your life is not about you. He has us gaze on holiness through windows of the saints, including: 

- St. Thomas Aquinas

- St. Thérèse of Lisieux
- St. Paul 
- Bl. Pier Giorgio Frassati 
- St. John of the Cross 

- Sts. Cyril and Methodius
- Bl. Miguel Pro
