Saint Blaise's Blessing of Throats
The day after Candlemas, Saint Blaise's blessing is so timely. This time of the year the upper respiratory illnesses abound. This hard winter has seen no lack of coughs in our home, but it has affected our Number Seven in a way I can't remember any of the kids having. She missed many events including State Honor Choir due to this illness.We took her to the doctor again today, and she came home with powerful antibiotics. Today I thank good Saint Blaise and we all look forward to her improved health!
Through the intercession of Saint Blase, 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.
This blog is dedicated to my Mother and Father, who taught me of God and of Art--and to Saint Teresa Benedicta de la Croce, our youngest child's patron saint, and about whom Husband and I learned together.
