BLESSING OF THROATS
Saturday, February 3 | 8:00am Mass
The annual Blessing of Throats commemorates the feast of St. Blaise, bishop and martyr. The legend has it that as the hunters hauled Blaise off to prison, a mother came with her young son who
had a fish bone lodged in his throat. At Blaise’s command the child was able to cough up the bone.
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.
