Day 33: St. Blaise

Today, we celebrated the feast of St. Blaise, the patron saint of throat diseases. On this day, the priest places two blessed candles on either side of your throat and says, “Through the intercession of Saint Blaise, bishop and martyr, may God deliver you from every disease of the throat and from every other illness: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.”

Blaise is also the patron saint of wool combers. If you are a wool comber, first of all, I am impressed, and second of all, you can pray to St. Blaise to help you do your best.
