St. Blaise Comments

Many Catholics might remember Saint Blaise's feast day because of the Blessing of the Throats that took place on this day. Two candles are blessed, held slightly open, and pressed against the throat as the blessing is said. Saint Blaise's protection of those with throat troubles apparently comes from a legend that a boy was brought to him who had a fishbone stuck in his throat. The boy was about to die when Saint Blaise healed him. Very few ... Continue Reading

    St. Blaise, I am asking for your help, not for myself, but for my husband..He suffered a stroke 3 weeks ago and is unable to swallow. He is only 59 years old and in excellent health otherwise. Through therapy I am hopeful that this abilbity is regained. Although therapy is good at this point We need your help. Please intercede and bless him today that he may regain his swallowing ability soon. He is a good man and still has a long life ahead of him..

    Dear St. Blaise

    Please pray for me. I have been experiencing throat problems and recently had an MRI to see what is causing this discomfort. I pray that whatever the surgeon finds can be healed by your prayers. Or if it is God's will for me to come home that my children will be safe and always comforted by my love for them. Amen.

    I had been suffering with different ailments for 6 plus years, primarily around the throat and neck. All tests from the doctors were negative and I attributed some of it to menopause. This past February I had my throat blessed in my church by Father Bill on St. Blaise day. Within a month I was involved in a minor car accident in which I was rear ended which sent me to the hospital for an xray and cat scan. The cat scan revealed a thryroid issue. This began my path to recovery and feeling well again, as well as avoiding much more serious illness. I was truly blessed! by Father Bill and St. Blaise!

    I am Catholic and went to Catholic school. In high school, our chaplain came around doing the blessing of the throats. We each got a blessing. I had a sore throat, but I did not think much of it. My faith was weak and I did not think anything would happen. I did not even consider it. I just went through the motions and walked away. Suddenly, I swallowed, and my throat no longer hurt. A miracle! I told 2 guys next to me and even my teacher, but secretly I think they did not believe me. Well, I'm almost certain they didn't. I was a class clown and they thought I was looking for attention. But, thank you St. Blaise for interceding for me. To this day, when I am feeling weak in my faith or doubting God's existence in my life, I think of that preternatural moment. May God's will be done. Continue praying folks.

    I had trouble swallowing pills when a child. It appeared to be a problem that I ourgrew as I got older, but now in my sixties, it is a problem that I am well aware of. When trying to swallow pills, one appears to get stuck in my trhoat and for some reason I can't swallow it. It evidently begins to dissolve in mu throat. Today I happened to be in a catholic church (St. Davids in Willow Grove Pennsylvania) where they mentioned that today was the Feast Day of St. Blaise, the patron saint for the healing of throats and other aillments. They also mentioned that after the mass they would do throat blessings. I remember the throat blessings when I was a child at St. Annes church in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in the Port Richmond section of Philly. Looking forward to my throat healing. Thank you Heavenly Father.
