Feb. 3, 2017 (Optional memorial of St. Blaise)

Blaise was Bishop of Sebaste in Armenia and martyred for the faith. In his memory, the Church blesses throats with the following blessing: “Through the intercession of St. Blaise, 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.”
