Saint Titus
Bishop, Confessor
Feast: 6 February

St. Titus, the first bishop of the island of Crete, died about the end of the First Century of our era.  He received from St. Paul an Epistle, which with the two Epistles to St. Timothy, forms the group known in the New Testament as the pastoral Epistles.

O GOD, Who didst adorn blessed Titus, Thy Confessor and Bishop, with apostolic virtues, grant, through his merits and intercession, that, living righteously and devoutly in this world, we may deserve to reach our heavenly country.  Through our Lord.  (Collect, Mass of St. Titus.)
