The following is an edited excerpt from text originally published in Fr. Joe’s letter found in the bulletin of January 30, 2022.
This week we celebrate the feast of St. Blaise, Bishop and Martyr of the Church.
After all masses on the weekend of January 29-30, 2022, there will be blessing of throats.
The prayer for the blessing of the throats is:
Through the intercession of St. Blaise, Bishop and Martyr, may the Lord protect you from all ailments of the neck and throat and all other illnesses. In the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
