Honoring Trinity and Divinity

Honoring Trinity and Divinity

It seems appropriate that during the week following The Baptism of the Lord, we honor Saint Hilary of Poitiers (January 13). At Jesus’ baptism, the voice of the Father is heard, claiming Jesus as his “beloved Son.” Saint Hilary defended belief in the divinity of Christ against those who claimed that Jesus was only human (Arianism). At Jesus’ baptism, the Holy Spirit descends upon Jesus in the form of a dove, so the Holy Trinity of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are all manifested visibly or audibly. Saint Hilary was exiled for championing the belief in Christ’s divinity. During his exile, he wrote some important works in defense of the Trinity and the divinity of Christ.
