St Paul appointed St Timothy Bishop of Ephesus. St Timothy was beaten and stoned to death by pagans for preaching Christ’s teachings, aged 80yrs. He is the patron of stomach ailments, having been a sufferer himself.
St Titus was a Greek Gentile convert from Antioch. He served as St Paul’s secretary and interpreter and travelled with him on missions. St Paul appointed St Titus Bishop of Crete to continue his work while he travelled elsewhere. St Titus is the Patron Saint of Crete and the US army Chaplain Corps.
