Saints Alive! | Sts Timothy & Titus

Today the Church celebrates the Memorial of Saints Timothy and Titus. Both men were close collaborators in Paul’s missionary journeys and continued his work among the Gentiles. Titus, Paul’s “partner and co-worker” (2 Cor 8:23), went to Crete, where he was charged with evangelizing the inhabitants, who were known to be “liars, vicious beasts, and lazy gluttons” (Ti 1:12). Timothy, “brother and co-worker for God in the gospel of Christ” (1 Thes 3:2), served in Ephesus. According to tradition, he became bishop and was martyred by pagans during the festival honoring the god Dionysus. For more about these saints, please click on the image. Peace be with you!
