Feast of St. Timothy

Today, January 24, is the Feast of St. Timothy, my patron saint and co-worker of St. Paul and St. John as Bishop of Ephesus.  From today's Epistle, 1 Timothy 6: 11-16:

611But thou, O man of God, fly these things: and pursue justice, godliness, faith, charity, patience, mildness.tu autem o homo Dei haec fuge sectare vero iustitiam pietatem fidem caritatem patientiam mansuetudinem
612Fight the good fight of faith. Lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art called and be it confessed a good confession before many witnesses.certa bonum certamen fidei adprehende vitam aeternam in qua vocatus es et confessus bonam confessionem coram multis testibus
613I charge thee before God who quickeneth all things, and before Christ Jesus who gave testimony under Pontius Pilate, a good confession:praecipio tibi coram Deo qui vivificat omnia et Christo Iesu qui testimonium reddidit sub Pontio Pilato bonam confessionem
614That thou keep the commandment without spot, blameless, unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ,ut serves mandatum sine macula inreprehensibile usque in adventum Domini nostri Iesu Christi
615Which in his times he shall shew, who is the Blessed and only Mighty, the King of kings and Lord of lords:quem suis temporibus ostendet beatus et solus potens rex regum et Dominus dominantium
616Who only hath immortality and inhabiteth light inaccessible: whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and empire everlasting. Amen.qui solus habet inmortalitatem lucem habitans inaccessibilem quem vidit nullus hominum sed nec videre potest cui honor et imperium sempiternum amen
