St. Hilarius | Saint of the day
Sunday, 28 February 2021

St. Hilary was born in Sardinia, Italy, and was a papal legate to the Robber Council of Ephesus in 449, barely escaping with his life from this affair.

Hilary was used by Pope St. Leo I the Great on many assignments. When Leo died, Hilary was elected pope and consecrated on November 19,461.

He worked diligently to strengthen the Church in France and Spain, calling councils in 462 and 465.

Hilary also rebuilt many Roman churches and erected the chapel of St. John Lateran.

He also publicly rebuked Emperor Anthemius in St. Peter’s for supporting the Macedonian heresy and sent a decree to the Eastern bishops validating the decisions of the General Councils of Nicaea, Ephesus, and Chalcedon. Hilary consolidated the Church in Sandi, Africa, and Gaul.

St. Hilary or Hilarius died in Rome on February 28.

Sunday Gospel reflection with Father William Grimm
16 April 2021

Let\'s face it — the Resurrection is unbelievable. Even seeing the risen Lord is not going to convince us otherwise. It\'s easier to believe in ghosts or to doubt one\'s own sanity.
