An event every year that begins at 12:00am on day 24 of January, repeating indefinitely
On the eve of the feast of the Conversion of St. Paul the Church has fixed the feast of St. Timothy, his faithful companion on his missionary journeys. Timothy also suffered imprisonment for Christ, and gloriously confessed his name, in the presence of many witnesses; but was set at liberty. He was ordained bishop by a prophecy, and a particular order of the Holy Ghost. The Epistle (1 Timothy 6. 11-16) of today’s Mass is a passage from one of the two admirable letters that, at the end of his career, St. Paul wrote to him to point out his duties as a bishop.
