Blessing of Throats Next Weekend

Monday Feb 3rd is the Feast of St Blaise. Throats will blessed after Masses on Sat, Sunday and Monday next.
According to legend ‘In 316, the governor of Cappadocia and of Lesser Armenia, Agricola, arrested Bishop Blaise for being a Christian. On their way to the jail, a woman set her only son, who was chocking to death on a fish bone, at his feet.

Blaise cured the child, and though Agricola was amazed, he could not get Blaise to renounce his faith. Therefore, Agricola beat Blaise with a stick and tore at his flesh with iron combs before beheading him.’
