St. Hilary

On the 13th of January the Church celebrates the Feast of St. Hilary, who was a Bishop and Doctor of the early Church.  He was known for his teaching and insights into the doctrine of the Holy Trinity.  St. Hilary was the subject of one of Pope Benedict’s General Audiences.  You’ll find some of St. Hilary’s writing here.

The revelation of the Trinity is about the inner-life of God.  God is relationship; or, as St. John said: “God is love!”  Christianity is about love!  Christianity is about relationship!  First, our Christian faith is about our relationship with God.  Second, we are called to love one another.  Jesus spoke of the “Great Commandment” — that is — to love God with our whole mind, heart and strength and to love our neighbor as ourself!  We are invited into this school of discipleship.  We are disciples of the ONE who is leading us into the mystery of LOVE itself.  As we pray, we begin with the “Sign of the Cross” – which reminds us that it is through the sacrifice of the Cross that we enter into the life of the Trinity.
