Feast of St. Blaise

January 31, 2019

Feast of St. Blaise Blessing


February 3rd is the Feast of St. Blaise. He was a bishop, physician,
and martyr from the 4th century in Turkey and he is famously
noted for saving the life of a boy by his prayers. A distraught mother approached St. Blaise and begged for his prayers to remove a fish bone that was caught in her only son’s throat. Through his
prayers the boy miraculously recovered and prayers
have been made ever since to him asking for healing
from any ailments of the throat. The blessing prayer
below is used when holding two candles in the form
of a cross up the throat as the priest prays;
Through the intercession of St. Blaise, bishop and
martyr, may Almighty God deliver you from every
disease of the throat and every other illness in the
name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy
Spirit. Amen.
Because his feast day is on a Sunday this year, we do
not celebrate the Mass for him as we would on a
weekday, but if anyone would like to receive this
blessing, I will offer it after the 10:30 a.m. Mass in Chaska.
