Saints Timothy and Titus
Timothy (d. 97?): What we know from the New Testament of Timothy's life
makes it sound like that of a modern harried bishop. He had the honor of
being a fellow apostle with Paul, both sharing the privilege of preaching
the gospel and suffering for it.
Titus (d. 94?): Titus has the distinction of being a close friend and
disciple of Paul as well as a fellow missionary. He was Greek, apparently
from Antioch.  For more about these Saints, click the link below:

God did not give us a spirit of cowardice but rather of power and love and
self-control. So do not be ashamed of your testimony to our Lord, nor of me,
a prisoner for his sake; but bear your share of hardship for the Gospel with
the strength that comes from God.  ~2 Timothy 1:1-8

For this reason I left you in Crete so that you might set right what remains
to be done and appoint presbyters in every town, as I directed you. ~ Titus

Timothy and Titus were missionaries with Paul. Like Paul, they faced
conflict and many difficulties.  Like Paul they knew they were not alone,
and needed to follow God's call, a God who gave them not "a spirit of
cowardice but rather of power and love and self-control."

I pray that I may be open to hearing and following God's call in my own
life.  I pray that I may not be afraid, but like Timothy, Titus and Paul,
may rely on the power, love and self-control that comes from God Himself.

We pray for unity in our country and that we may build a Culture of Life. We
pray for the safety of our troops, their safe return and their families at
home.  We pray for a deep and profound respect for life, and for the courage
and willingness to stand up for life. We pray for one another, for those who
have asked our prayers and for those who need our prayers the most. Have a
good day!

May God Bless you and those you love, and keep you safe!

Father Pat
