St. Blaise Holy Cards
Have your throats blessed on Feb 3!
Legend says that sick animals would come to St. Blaise for help and healing (but never disturbing him at prayer).
We have our throats blessed on his feast day because he is credited with saving a child who was choking on a fish bone.

Prayer to St. Blaise
Dear St. Blaise, lover of
souls, you willingly bore
heavy crosses in faithful
imitation of Jesus.
Similarly, with Christlike
compassion you cured
Then after undergoing
horrible tortures you died
as a martyr for Christ.
O Compassionate St. Blaise,
if it is agreeable to
Our Heavenly Father,
obtain a cure for my ills.
