Saint Titus

Titus ordained by Paul

Titus ordained by Paul

O God, who by thine Apostle Saint Paul didst consecrate thy servant Titus a Bishop in the Church, that he might set in order things that were wanting: Give grace, we humbly beseech thee, to the Bishops and Pastors of thy flock, that they may supply in every place faithful stewards of thy mysteries, who shall constantly affirm sound doctrine and shew themselves patterns of good works; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

¶ Or this:

Blessed Lord, who didst charge Saint Titus to speak the  things that accord with sound doctrine and to offer himself a pattern of good works: Grant to all thy people to live soberly, righteously, and godly in this present age, that they may with sure confidence look for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Saviour Jesus Christ, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit ever, one God, world without end. Amen.

Saint Titus was not added to the GRC until 1845. In 1969, his commemoration was combined with that of Saint Timothy on January 26, the day after the Conversion of Saint Paul.
