ST. TIMOTHY AND ST. TITUS

MEMORIAL: JANUARY 26

St. Timothy and Titus were students and companions of St. Paul. There are letters that Paul wrote to each of them found in the canon of scripture. St. Timothy was the son of a pagan and Christian woman. He was beloved by Paul and was circumcised for the good of Jewish believers. He accompanied Paul in many of his journeys and was believed to be with Paul at the end of Paul’s life. After Paul’s martyrdom, Timothy became bishop of Ephesus where he would eventually be martyred by stoning. 

Less is known about St. Titus. Like Timothy, we know that he was the companion of Paul on missionary journeys and was left behind to aid a christian community that Paul started. After Paul was martyred, it is said that Titus was the first bishop of Crete where he lived the rest of his life.
