The Holy holy, glorious and all-laudable '''Apostle Titus''' was born into idolatry on Crete, though he was of Greek origin. Having believed in [[Christ]] through the [[Apostle Paul]], he became Paul's [[disciple ]] and follower and labored with him greatly in the preaching of the [[Gospel]]. He was one of the [[Apostle|Seventy Apostles]].  ==His lifeLife==
In Jerusalem, St . Titus heard [[Christ]]'s preaching and believed in him. He then witnessed the suffering and death of the [[Jesus Christ|Savior ]] on the [[Cross]], his glorious [[Resurrection ]] and [[Ascension ]] to Heavenheaven. On the day of [[Pentecost]] the future apostle heard how the Twelve Apostles, after the descent of the [[Holy Spirit]], spoke in various languages, among which was the Cretan language ([[Acts of the Apostles|Acts]] 2: 11).
Paul [[consecration of a bishop|ordained ]] him [[Bishop]] of Crete, and he later wrote to him the [[epistle]] which bears his name.
St . Titus died peacefully at the age of 97 and is commemorated by the Church on [[August 25]].

:To grant our souls forgiveness of transgressions.
:Therefore we cry out to you:
:Never cease to intercede for the sake of us all!
