Blessing of Throats
Monday, February 2nd, is the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord, Candlemas Day. Candles blessed on this day are used in our liturgy, in homes, and in prayer to remind us of the presence of Christ, the Light of the World. We are called to bring that light into the world through our efforts to evangelize. Why not bring the light of Christ to someone this year? Invite them to Alpha! If you would like candles blessed, please place them on the table in the chapel before Mass on Monday. Blessed candles for your home use will be available after Mass.
Tuesday, February 3rd, is the Memorial of St. Blaise, bishop and martyr. St. Blaise was a bishop of Sebaste (in Armenia) in the 4th century. He was a powerful instrument of God’s healing power. The tradition developed in the Church to invoke his protection against sickness and all evil. We will bless throats on this day at our 8:30 am daily Mass, asking for the intercession of St. Blaise.
