Tim Tebow Closer To Sainthood After Healing Sick Fan For Second Confirmed Miracle [Update]

Let me tell you the story of Saint Timothy of Gainesville.

Saint Sylvester (4th cent Rome) fed and sheltered vagrants in his home, including Saint Timothy during persecution, who inspired him to preach the Gospel. Sylvester became deacon at 30, presbyter and then Bishop of Rome. When Jews organized a debate about the true faith before Emperor Constantine and Empress Helen, Sylvester won over the rabbis (who were headed by a magician/sorcerer), and annulled their spells with the Name of Jesus. All were converted. Saint Sylvester is celebrated Jan 2.
