From the Office of Matins:

Lectio 3
Hilárius, in Aquitánia nóbili génere natus, doctrína et eloquéntia excélluit. Pictavórum epíscopus creátus, tale munus sic gessit, ut a fidélibus summam laudem consequerétur. Ob cathólicam fidem, quam strénue propugnávit, quadriénnio apud Phrygiam relegátus, inter ália mirácula, mórtuum suscitávit. Duódecim libros scripsit de Trinitáte contra Ariános, et Gálliam univérsam addúxit, ut Arianórum impietátem condemnáret. Multos libros scripsit mira eruditióne; quos omnes sanctus Hierónymus ad Lætam sine ulla erróris suspicióne legi posse testátur illis verbis: Hilárii libros inoffénso decúrrat pede. Migrávit in cælum Idibus Ianuárii, anno trecentésimo sexagésimo nono. Eum Pius nonus Póntifex máximus, instánte synodo Burdigalénsi, Doctórem universális Ecclésiæ declarávit et confirmávit.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

Reading 3
Hilarius born of a noble family in Aquitaine, had few equals in teaching and eloquence. Made bishop of Poitiers, he exercised his ministry in such a way as to gain the highest praise from the faithful. His vigorous campaign for the Catholic faith led to a four year exile in Phrygia. There he raised a dead man to life and performed other miracles. He wrote twelve books on the Trinity against the Arians, and induced all Gaul to condemn the Arian blasphemy He wrote many books showing wonderful learning; St. Jerome writing to Laeta, testifies in these words that they can be read with out the least fear of error: one can run through Hilary's works without stumbling." He went to heaven on the l3th of January in the year 369. Pins IX, at the request of the synod of Bordeaux, declared and confirmed him to be a Doctor of the universal Church.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.
