Holiness requires conversion

Here’s a recent talk by Fr Dave Pivonka TOR which I found very appropriate for my Lenten reflection this year:

He discusses what holiness is, and why conversion is necessary to attain it. His blend of humor with sobriety makes him easy to listen to.

For me, the section of his talk concerning the necessity of our conversion from fear to trust is priceless. My novena prayers to St Joseph over the past days have included the Litany to St Joseph. The version I used included the acclamation “Joseph, most valiant…” Other versions use the word “strong” in place of “valiant.” However, I think the term “valiant” very much expresses what Fr Dave means when he talks about our freedom from fear and our trust being noticeable to others.
