February 3 – Saint Blaise


Lord Jesus Christ, Saint Blaise was a 2nd century physician who served You, healing both humans and animals.  While imprisoned for his faith, he healed his fellow prisoners and saved a child who was choking on a fish bone.  Thus he became the patron saint of throat ailments, colds and viruses.  I ask him to intercede for myself, my family, my friends, and everyone who has asked for my prayers.  Lord Jesus, help us in every ailment.  Heal us physically, emotionally, and spiritually.  May our sufferings be used to glorify God.  And teach us how to become Your instrument of healing for others.  Saint Blaise, pray for us.  Amen.
