Starting Wednesday Off Right: That's Hilarious Edition

Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

PATER NOSTER, qui es in caelis, sanctificetur nomen tuum. Adveniat regnum tuum. Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in caelo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie, et dimitte nobis debita nostra sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris. Et ne nos inducas in tentationem, sed libera nos a malo. Amen.

Today is the Feast of St. Hilary of Poitiers, a father and doctor of the Church.  He was born in ARSH 300 and died in ARSH 368.  “Hilary” means happy or cheerful, hence the word “hilarious”.

When I look at Your heavens, according to my own lights, with these weak eyes of mine, I am certain with reservation that they are Your heavens. The stars circle in the heavens, reappear year after year, each with a function and service to fulfill. And though I do not understand them, I know that You, O God, are in them.  -St. Hilary of Poitiers
