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

    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.

    Dear St. Blaise, please heal my throat. I have had cancer in my throat three times now and never knew to pray to you until now. I have had two operations. One where they took out half my tongue, my voicebox and by lymph nodes. they rebuilt my tongue from skin and muscle from my left thigh. The second operation took a big chunk of my neck which was rebuit from using my right pectoral muscle in my chest. I have had a total of sixty eight radiation treatments and a series of chemo treatments as well. I am holding my own now for over two years. I have another scan scheduled for Tuesday. I pray to you that all goes well. Thank you. Amen.

    Dear St. Blaise, Please watch over my friend Mike. He is very uncomfortable right now and needs lots of love and prayers. After under going cancer surgery, he now has more throat problems. Sunday is your feast day. Mike will not be able to come to get his throat blessed, but please give him a conditional blessing. I ask this in Jesus's name.

    I was reminded of your healing and prayers from many years ago. Most forgotten Saint there is a desease attacking our world, it's called HPV. Please intervene and stop this virus. A mother asked me for help for her 14 year old daughter. I am sick as well and offered my mind and heart. There is a suspision from an acquaintance that this desease root cause is animal related, especially horses. As a lover of these majistic animals I fear this will make AIDS look like the common cold. It makes to much sence that many of the gromers travel around the world and live in deplorable conditions. The worst is now man and animal are spreading this throat virus. I am no Doctor and am only asking for this Powerful Saint to intervien. If this virus can be stopped then only faith can heal it. I start Medical treatments for cancer in 2 days. I fear they are restricted by clinical knowledge and need Saint Belise guidence and strength.
