St. Blaise Comments

Two candles are blessed, held slightly open, and pressed against the throat as the blessing is said.

    I was out having coffee with my 80yr old mum today and she told me of her experience of St. Blaise (she has many stories to tell). My eldest siblings are 9, 8 and 7 yrs older than myself. Pat, my eldest sister was apparently always ill as a child, she recovered miraculously (and that's another story) from TB but always suffered throat infections such as tonsillitis, as did my elder brothers. Mum took them all too church on the Feast Day of St. Blaize and asked the Priest if he would bless them. Off course he was obliging and since then neither my older brothers and sisters or I ever suffered a throat infection again. I have had Laryngitis as an adult were I have lost my voice but never had a sore throat. Is this a miracle, I believe!

    I really like this web-site because I have to do a report on a saint for school about any saint we want. I chose St. Blaise.

    I believe he was also a patron of Veterinarians too, because it says that he healed the animals of their sicknesses. As for how he died, I think he was skinned alive, then beheaded. I'm doing this for my assignment too. :)
