If you are young & have transferable skills, #Exit! #RunDontWalk. If long in tooth, you may contemplate homicide, or joining a #HolyOrder. There's still a need for the latter.

SAINT HILARY OF POITIERS
Bishop and Doctor of the Church
(c. 315-c. 367)

Saint #Hilary was a native of #Poitiers in #Aquitaine. Born and educated a pagan, it was not till near middle age that he embraced Christianity, moved thereto mainly by the idea of God presented to him in the #HolyScriptures. He soon #converted his wife and daughter, and separated himself rigidly from all un-Catholic company.

In the beginning of his conversion #SaintHilary would not eat with Jews or heretics, nor salute them by the way; but afterwards, for their sake, he relaxed this severity. He entered #HolyOrders, and in 350 was chosen bishop of his native city.

Arian heresy, under the protection of the #EmperorConstantine, was just then in the height of its power, and Saint Hilary found himself called upon to support the orthodox cause in several Gallic councils, in which Arian bishops formed an overwhelming majority. He was in consequence accused to the emperor, who banished him to Phrygia. He spent his three years and more of exile in composing his great Treatise on the Trinity and many others works.

In 359 he attended the #CouncilofSeleucia, in which #Arians, semi-Arians, and Catholics contended for the mastery. With the deputies of the council he proceeded to #Constantinople, and there so dismayed the heads of the Arian party that they prevailed upon the emperor to let him return to Gaul. He traversed #Gaul, #Italy, and #Illyria, wherever he came discomfiting the heretics and procuring triumph of orthodoxy.

After seven or eight years of missionary travel he returned to Poitiers, where he died in peace in 368.

frference A couple of weeks ago I baptized Lucas, on the feast of St. Lucy. Lucas' mom & dad studied at LUC. I was honored to witness their wedding vows a few years ago. Luc's mom was the first teen I met at my first parish. Needless to say, I'm grateful for my vocation, and the vocation of Luc's mom & dad, and look forward to seeing how Luc serves The Lord. #catholic #baptism #vocation #HolyOrders #Matrimony #friendship @clairelizchap 4w
