St. Timothy

Saint TimothyA faithful follower and companion of Paul, very probably he was converted by the Apostle during his first journey. Son of a pagan father and Jewish mother, Paul had him circumcised to facilitate his ministry among the Jews. He accompanied Paul in the second and third journey and was with him during the first imprisonment. Paul left him as Bishop in Ephesus, and prisoner in Rome, asked him to reach him and keep him company.
