FEAST OF ST. BLAISE: Blessing of the Throats
Weekend Masses, February 2-3, 2019
Father Juettner will perform the blessing of the throats after both Masses next weekend. February 3rd is the feast day of Saint Blaise, bishop of Sebaste in Armenia during the 4th century.
Blaise was a physician before becoming a bishop. Tradition holds that he was to have miraculously cured a child who nearly died because of a fishbone caught in the throat. From the 8th century on, Saint Blaise has been invoked on behalf of the sick, especially those afflicted with illness of the throat. It is tradition to offer the Rite of Blessings of Throats on his feast day. The blessing will take place after the closing hymn at the Saturday 4pm and Sunday 9:15am Masses.
