Saint Hilary, Bishop of Poitiers and Doctor

Hilary of Poitiers

The Ordination of Hilary of Poitiers, from a 14th century Lives of the Saints, by Richard de Montbaston and others. From Wikipedia.

O God, who hast enlightened thy Church by the teaching of thy servant Saint Hilary: Enrich it evermore, we beseech the, with thy heavenly grace, and raise up faithful witnesses, who by their life and doctrine may set forth to all men the truth of thy salvation; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

¶ Or this:

O Lord our God, who didst raise up thy servant Hilary to be a champion of the catholic faith: Keep us stedfast in that true faith which we professed at our baptism, that we may rejoice in having thee for our Father, and may abide in thy Son, in the fellowship of the Holy Spirit; thou who livest and reignest for ever and ever. Amen.

¶ Or this:

Almighty God, who gavest to thy servant Hilary great gifts of learning and teaching, and faithfulness in bearing witness to thy truth: Grant to thy Church a continuance of such gifts, with grace to use the same to thy glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
