OF COURSE, IF YOU HAD ANY DOUBT, SAINT JOSEPH BLESSED EVERYONE'S THROATS TODAY, THE FEAST OF SAINT BLAISE
In place of the normal recessional, as the recessional hymn was being sung, we invited parishioners to come forward for the traditional blessing of throats in honor of Saint Blaise. And I must say everyone came forward and then departed.
Did your parish bless throats today??????????
Through the intercession of Saint Blaise, Bishop and Martyr, may God deliver of every disease of the throat and every other illness, in the name of the the Father + and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
