Book of Saints – Mark and Timothy


(Saints) Martyrs (March 24) (2nd century) Pope Saint Pius I (A.D. 158-167) mentions these two Martyrs, describing them as Priests, in a letter to Justus, Bishop of Vienne in Gaul. The Pope recalls that they had been brought up by the Apostles and exhorts all to follow the example of steadfastness they had given to the Church. Baronius is of opinion that this Saint Timothy was a son of the Senator Pudens, and a brother of Saints Pudentiana and Praxedes. A.D. 148 is a probable date for their martyrdom.
