Saints Timothy and Titus, Bishops
 (Monday of week 3 in Ordinary Time)

Christ is the chief shepherd, the leader of his flock: come, let us adore him

Year: B(I). Psalm week: 3.

Saints Timothy and Titus
Timothy and Titus were converted to Christianity by St Paul, and became his companions and helpers. Paul entrusted Timothy with the care of the Christians in Ephesus, and sent Titus to Crete to look after the Christians there. He wrote them the so-called “pastoral” epistles, giving advice for pastors and people alike.
