For today February 10: Silas Fellow Worker of St. Peter and St. Paul. Silas, a leader in the Church at Jerusalem, was chosen by Paul (Acts 15:40) to acompany him on his second missionary journey from Antioch to Asia Minor and Macadonia. Silas, also known Silvanus, was imprisoned with Paul in Philippi and experienced the riots in Thessalonica and Berea. After rejoining Paul in Corinth, Silas apparently remained there for an extended time. Sometime later he apparently joined the apostle Peter, likely serving as Peter’s secretary (1 Peter 5:12). Tradition says that Silas was the first bishop at Corinth.
