St Timothy

 Dear Students and Friends,

Yesterday was the feast day of St Timothy. St Timothy was an apostle of St Paul, of whom Paul wrote that Timothy was like a son to him. The letters to St Timothy are full of advice and thoughts on how to live in a fallen world and are thus very encouraging!

Study a bit about St Timothy. You can earn credits for doing so and be edified by this young man's ministry. Here are some activities:
Troparion — Tone 4
Having learned goodness and maintaining continence in all things, / you were arrayed with a good conscience as befits a priest. / From the chosen Vessel you drew ineffable mysteries; / you kept the faith, and finished a course equal to His. / Bishop martyr Timothy, entreat Christ God that our souls may be saved.

Kontakion — Tone 1
Let us the faithful praise the Holy Apostle Timothy, / the companion of Paul in his travels and together with him / let us honor the wise Anastasius, who came as a star from Persia / for the healing of the passions of our souls and the diseases of our bodies.

St Timothy, pray for us!
