First Reading for Saints Timothy and Titus

Titus 1:1-5

The first reading for this memorial is proper.

Summary: Paul, serving God and Christ, aims to bolster faith and understanding of truth, anchoring in God's eternal promise. He entrusts Titus to appoint elders in Crete, continuing their shared mission.

Paul's Mission and Titus's Task

Paul, a slave of God and Apostle of Jesus Christ for the sake of the faith of God’s chosen ones and the recognition of religious truth, in the hope of eternal life that God, who does not lie, promised before time began, who indeed at the proper time revealed his word in the proclamation with which I was entrusted by the command of God our savior, to Titus, my true child in our common faith: grace and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our savior.

For this reason I left you in Crete so that you might set right what remains to be done and appoint presbyters in every town, as I directed you.
