Throughout his life, St. Timothy suffered from poor health, constantly getting sick during his travels spreading the Good News. In 1 Timothy 5:23 it is written “Stop drinking water only; take a little wine for the good of your stomach and your frequent illnesses.”

The Calling of St. Timothy
St. Timothy was born at Lystra in Asia Minor. Saint Timothy was a beloved disciple of St. Paul, forsaking his country, his home and his parents to follow the Apostle and to share in his poverty and sufferings. St. Paul, recognizing Timothy’s incredible gift of evangelization, personally ordained him and they worked closely together in spreading the Good News.

St. Timothy Preaches throughout Asia
St. Timothy accompanied St. Paul on his missionary journeys from Lystra through Asia; at Philippi, Thessalonica and Berea, in 52. St. Paul, who obliged to leave Berea on account of the persecution of the Jews, left Timothy behind him to strengthen the new converts there. When St. Paul reached Athens he sent for Saint Timothy, but upon learning that the Christians in Thessalonica were being persecuted for the Faith, he sent St. Timothy there to comfort and encourage them.

Later Saint Timothy went to Corinth to give an account to St. Paul of his success. This inspired St. Paul to write his first Epistle to the Thessalonians. He then commissioned St. Timothy and Erastus to go before him through Macedonia, to notify the faithful of his intention and to prepare the alms to be sent to the Christians in Jerusalem.

St. Timothy is Made a Bishop
St. Timothy, was made the first Bishop of Ephesus, and while there received two Epistles from St. Paul which bears his name; the first was written from Macedonia in 64, while incarcerated there, urging his “dearly beloved son”, to come to see him again before death would summon him. In the year 64, after St. Paul had returned to Rome from the East, he left St. Timothy at Ephesus to establish the church, to ordain Priests and Deacons, and consecrate Bishops.

St. Timothy also suffered imprisonment for Christ gloriously confessed His name in the presence of many people. Timothy died a martyr in the year 97A.D. Because of his frail health he is the patron of those with stomach disorders. St. Paul writes, “Stop drinking water only; take a little wine for the good of your stomach and your frequent illnesses.” (I Timothy 5:23). St. Timothy is the co-writer of Thessalonians, 2 Corinthians, Philippians, and Colossians.

St. Timothy is the Patron Saint of Stomach Problems
The Catholic Church regards St. Timothy as the patron saint of stomach problems and stomach ailments. It is recorded in the Bible that St. Timothy often suffered stomach problems and Saint Paul even wrote in his letters to Saint Timothy possible solutions to St. Timothy’s stomach problems. In 1 Timony 5:3 Saint Paul writes to Saint Timothy with a suggestion to remedy his stomach ailments.
