The Feast of My Namesake

St. Timothy

Today is the feast day of St. Timothy, for whom I am named. 

Here’s the collect:

O almighty God, by your Son, our Savior, you have always given to your Church on earth faithful shepherds to guide and feed your flock.  Therefore we pray, make all pastors diligent to preach your holy Word and minister your means of grace, and grant your people wisdom to follow in the way that leads to life eternal; through our Lord Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
