St. Titus, Pastor and Confessor

St. Titus, Pastor and Confessor
January 26

Titus was an early Christian missionary and Church leader, a companion and disciple of Paul the Apostle, mentioned in several of the Pauline epistles including the Epistle to Titus. He is believed to be a Gentile converted to Christianity by Paul and, according to tradition, he was consecrated as Bishop of the Island of Crete. He is commemorated on January 26.

Almighty and eternal God,
we thank you for the knowledge of your dear Son.
Since Satan fights against us at all times
and seeks to keep such knowledge away from us,
govern and guide us by your Holy Spirit
so that we remain in this knowledge and be forever blessed,
through Jesus Christ, your Son, our Lord. Amen.
