St. Blase Feast Day.....February 3

"Through the intercession of Saint Blase, bishop and martyr, may God deliver you from ailments of the throat and from every other evil. In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit"
(Blessing of Saint Blase)

According to a legend, a mother came with her young son who had a fish bone lodged in his throat. At Blase’s command the child was able to cough up the bone. He was beheaded for not sacrifacing to pagan gods
