Pope Saint Hilary


The 28th of February is the feast day of Pope Saint Hilary. He is also known as Pope Saint Hilarius.

Pope Saint Hilary lived in the 5th century and was the Bishop of Rome between 461 and 468. Little is known of his early life apart from that he was from Sardinia. He became archdeacon during Pope Saint Leo the Great pontificate and worked closely with him as an aid. He was sent as a papal legate to the Council of Ephesus in 449 where he fought against the monophysite heresy. His life was threatened because of this and he was forced to hide and he fled back to Rome. After Pope Leo’s death, he was elected as pope. As pope, Saint Hilary affirmed the rights of the papacy in spiritual matters, fighting against the Roman Emperor and sought the organisation and disciplining of the bishops of the Holy See. He worked to build and remodelled the Roman churches and public places, decorating them.

Dear children, My motherly heart suffers as I am looking at my children who do not love the truth, those who are hiding it - as I look at my children who do not pray with their feelings and actions. I am sad as I am saying to my Son that many of my children no longer have faith, that they do not know Him - my Son. That is why I call you, apostles of my love: you strive to look to the very depth in human hearts and there you are certain to find the little hidden treasure. To look in this way is mercy from the Heavenly Father. To seek the good even where there is the greatest evil - to strive to comprehend each other and not to judge - that is what my Son is asking of you. And I, as a mother, am calling you to listen to Him. My children, the spirit is mightier than the flesh, and, carried by love and actions, it overcomes all obstacles. Do not forget: my Son has loved you and loves you. His love is with you and in you when you are one with Him. He is the light of the world and no one and nothing will be able to stop Him in the final glory. Therefore, apostles of my love, do not be afraid to witness the truth. Witness it with enthusiasm, with works, with love, with your sacrifice, and, above all, in humility. Witness the truth to all those who have not come to know my Son. I will be alongside you. I will encourage you. Witness the love which never ends because it comes from the Heavenly Father who is eternal and who offers eternity to all of my children. The spirit of my Son will be alongside you. Anew I am calling you, my children: pray for your shepherds, pray that the love of my Son may lead them. Thank you.
