Short Lives of the Saints – Saint Titus, Bishop of Crete


Saint Titus was converted to the faith by the great apostle Saint Paul, and afterwards became his disciple and companion in his evangelical wanderings. In the year 63, Saint Paul created Titus bishop of Crete, and there addressed to him one of his wonderful Epistles. Later on Saint Titus labored at Nicopolis, and in Dalmatia, in the work of the Gospel; but after the martyrdom of Saint Paul he returned to his diocese of Crete, and died there at a very advanced age.

In white arrayed, his face as though it were
Lit with the radiance of the star of dawn.
– Alighieri Dante
