Saint Timothy

Rembrandt St Timothy

Timothy and his grandmother, by Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn (1606–1669). From Wikipedia. Timothy, his mother Eunice, and his grandmother Lois, were all members of the Christian community in Lystra in Lycaonia, when Paul visited Lystra for the second time, in the company of Silas.

O God, eternal and only wise, who by the labours of Saint Timothy didst establish and comfort thy people concerning their faith: Grant us grace that like him we may fight the good fight of faith and lay hold on eternal life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

¶ The modern observance of this feast, together with that of Saint Titus, is on January 26.
