Through the intercession of St. Blaise, bishop and martyr,
may God free you from illness of the throat and from any other sort of ill.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son + and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.
During his homily this morning, Father Romeo reminded us that we can be cured of diseases of the throat easily with modern medicine and care. What we need to be cured of on this feast day, is the disease of profanity, of gossip, of slander and other offense against God and our neighbor when we use our throats and voice.
