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.

    The Feast Day of St. Blaise is tomorrow, February 3rd. Check to see if any Catholic churches in your area are offering the traditional Blessing of Throats. Saw this listed in our church bulletin, and it reminded me of when I was a little girl, and my grandmother would take me to church with her for such blessings. :)

    I am having a blessing on my throat tomorrow the 3rd Feb and am hoping that St Blaise will grant me confiidence to use my voice again to sing and give pleasure to people, as I did for quite a few years. Owing to setbacks, I lost my cofidence and the drive to use the gift I was given, and am sure the throat infections I have had recently area symptom of this depression and loss of beleif in myself.and my ability to go it alone. I will ask for his presence with me.

    well, personally i can't rate the saints. the fact that they were elevated to such status meant they did the extraordinary. the title they were bestowed, it is forever.now how could i rate somebody like that? sorry....

    How is his name pronounced? Very interesting - he is on the Feb page of our new parish calender and I noticed because I have been having throat problems due to reflux...noted the Wild Animals connection as well and will send a donation to Defenders of the Wildlife - got their mailing just yesterday!

    Seems to be two connections for me here! Will be at Mass on Feb 3rd.
