January 4: St Titus, Bishop and Confessor, Memorial


St Titus appears in the martyrology today with this description:

"In Crete, the birthday of St Titus, who was ordained Bishop of the Cretans by St Paul the Apostle, and, after having faithfully fulfilled the office of preaching, died a blessed death.  He was buried in the church to which he was appointed a worthy minister by the blessed Apostle."

In the Roman calendar, his feast-day is kept on February 6, but in the Benedictine it is kept on the actual day.
