Saint Timon

The 19th of April is the feast day of Saint Timon the Deacon.

Saint Timon lived during the 1st Century and is mentioned in the Acts of the Apostles in 6:5 by name. He was part of the 70 disciples who followed Jesus during His ministry. Saint Timon was later one of the first 7 Deacons chosen by the Apostles after Pentecost and Jesus' ascension into heaven. He baptised many Greeks and Jews according to tradition. He also is said to have the ability to cast out devils and heal the sick. He died by crucifixion, after they unsuccessfully tried to throw him into the furnace but he was unharmed by the fire.

Dear children, when you come to me, as to a mother, with a pure and open heart, know that I am listening to you, encouraging you, consoling you, and above all, interceding for you with my Son. I know that you desire to have a strong faith and to express it in the right way. What my Son asks of you is to have a sincere, strong and deep faith - then every way in which you express it is proper. Faith is a most wonderful mystery which is kept in the heart. It is between the Heavenly Father and all of His children; it is recognized by the fruits and by the love which one has towards all of God's creatures. Apostles of my love, my children, have trust in my Son. Help all of my children to come to know His love. You are my hope - you who strive to sincerely love my Son. In the name of love, for your salvation, according to the will of the Heavenly Father and through my Son, I am here among you. Apostles of my love, along with prayer and sacrifice, may your hearts be illuminated with the love and the light of my Son. May that light and love illuminate all those whom you meet and bring them back to my Son. I am with you. In a special way, I am alongside your shepherds. With my motherly love I illuminate and encourage them, that with the hands blessed by my Son, they may bless the entire world. Thank you.
