This Tuesday Feb 3 is feast of St Blaise reflection from the ‘Soul Institute’

"Let the Fire Fall"

February 3 is the feast day of Saint Blaise, bishop and martyr.  St Blaise was a fourth century bishop.  Tradition tells us that a woman had a son who was choking on a fish bone, and the bishop prayed over the boy and he was healed.

From this event in the life of St Blaise rose the tradition of blessing the throats of people at mass on Feb 3.

At the mass the priest or deacon will say as he places two candles around the person’s throat, “through the intercession of St Blaise bishop and martyr may you be healed of every disease of the throat and of every other illness.”

We are asking through the intercession of St Blaise to not only heal the throat, but any other illness.

When we get our throats blessed this Tuesday on the feast of St Blasie may we come with faith.
