Pope Saint Hilary


The 28th of February is the feast day of Pope Saint Hilary (5th c.). 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.

My children, as a mother, as the Queen of Peace, I am calling you to accept my Son so that He can grant you peace of soul - that He can grant you that which is just, which is good for you. My children, my Son knows you. He lived the life of man, and at the same time of God: a wondrous life-human flesh, divine Spirit. Therefore, my children, while my Son is looking at you with His eyes of God, He penetrates into your hearts. His tender, warm eyes are looking for Himself in your heart. My children, can He find Himself [there]? Accept Him, and then the moments of pain and suffering will become moments of tenderness. Accept Him, and you will have peace in [your] soul - you will spread it to all those around you - and this is what you now need the most. Heed me, my children. Pray for the shepherds, for those whose hands my Son has blessed. Thank you.
