Description

Saint Timothy was born in  Lystra, Lycaonia in Asia Minor of a Greek father and a Jewish mother.  Saint Paul chose him because of his ardent faith as a traveling companion in his apostolic journeys as a helper, and then circumcised him so that he would be more acceptable to the Jewish Christians in Jerusalem.  Saint Timothy traveled with Saint Paul and preached with him in Acaia, Macedonia, Italy, and Spain.  Saint Paul also wrote two of his Epistles addressed to Saint Timothy, exhorting him to be strong and a leader, even though he was still a younger man.

Before Saint Paul was martyred in Rome in about a.d. 64, he consecrated Saint Timothy as a bishop for Ephesus.  After Saint Paul died, Saint Timothy sought direction and advice from Saint John the Theologian, who was living in Ephesus.  When Saint John was exiled to Patmos by the Roman Emperor Domitian (who ruled from a.d. 81 to 96), Saint Timothy remained and served the Faithful in Ephesus.  At the pagan festival of Katagogium in about the year a.d. 97, Saint Timothy stopped the festival and preached the Gospel, angering the pagans, so they beat him and then stoned him to death.
