Saint Titus the Apostle
Date of celebration: 25/08
The Apostle Titus, who was Greek by birth, was highly educated. He became a Christian from the Apostle Paul, with whom he collaborated in spreading the Gospel.
He followed him to Jerusalem and was then commissioned to go to Corinth to see the state of the Church there. On his return, he met the Apostle Paul in Macedonia and then they went together to Crete, where Paul made him bishop of the island and told him to make priests for the whole island.
Paul also sent him the well-known letter to Titon, from which we know that Paul’s Greek disciple is his “genuine son”. From his same letter we learn that Titus had brilliant associates in Crete, Zenas the jurist and the famous Apollo. He died in the year 105 AD.
