Book of Saints – Timothy – 22 August

main article for Saint Timothy of RomeArticle

(Saint) Martyr (August 22) (Date unknown) A Roman Martyr venerated from ancient times throughout the Catholic Church. It is stated that after a long imprisonment and a savage scourging he was beheaded outside the Walls of Rome, near the site of the great Basilica of Saint Paul, in which his Relics have been enshrined. The opinion generally accepted is that he suffered under Diocletian, that is, about A.D. 300. The Lection in the Roman Breviary adopts this view, and moreover qualifies Saint Timothy as a Syrian from Antioch.
