Come to Mass this Thursday evening and have your throat blessed on the Feast of St. Blaise!
Ask for protection from colds and throat ailments.
Today we remember the saint on his feast day by taking two candles, crossing them against the throat, and saying the following prayer:
Through the intercession of St. Blaise, bishop and martyr, may God deliver you from ailments of the throat and from every other evil. In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
