I think that you are thinking about Redstone Dust (the block). I'm talking about Redstone Ore, the block that produces Redstone (the item) when mined.
I tried a simple repeater clock, but it didn't work. According to what I've tested, it's not exactly a block update that invigorates the ore, but it's when you right-click it to place a block, e.g. if you placed a block on dirt that would make your placed block adjacent to the ore, it won't light up, but if you use the ore as your support rather than the dirt, it would glow.
Now, just to try to inspire, it is true that other mobs can cause Redstone Ore to glow. However, they have to either jump on it or walk around on it. I tried using fences to keep a Slime inside, but they were so glitchy that they went above the ore and hopped on the fence, until they eventually got out. I tried mobs that walked, but they wouldn't move since the AI knew they were in a 1x1 area.

Broken( ie while being broken)
You could constantly hit it over and over, or place a mob ontop of it surrounded by fences to prevent him falling off the top of the block

That won't work due to this:
Although a half block or water could probably be used, mobs will always jump in certain situations.

This would work, but I need the block to be still.
2x1 area above + 3 villagers = success! Thank you for the ideas, guys! The problem is resolved.
