The Church commemorates Saint Timothy the Apostle.
Saint Timothy was a faithful disciple of Saint Paul the Apostle and is addressed as the recipient of the First and Second Epistles to Timothy. These two books are a group of three books of the canonical New Testament, which are called pastoral epistles, because they addressed not to Christian communities but to spiritual shepherds-bishops with pastoral oversight of local churches, such as Timothy, who shepherded with ardor and self-denial the Church of Ephesus in Asia Minor.
Saint Timothy first met his teacher in his hometown, Lystra, when Saint Paul visited the city. His spiritual gifts and Greek education were highly valued, and from that time on he followed Saint Paul on his second missionary tour in Greece.
The Apostle Timothy also worked with Saint John the Evangelist before his exile to Patmos. He was martyred and buried in Ephesus, but later his holy relic was transferred to Constantinople and placed in the Church of the Holy Apostles.
