Father of mercy and God of all consolation, graciously look upon me and impart to me the blessing which flows from this holy Sacrament. Overshadow me with Your loving kindness, and let this divine Mystery bear fruit in me - Saint Blaise.

Saint Blaise, you accepted the will of God as it was expressed through the acclamation of the people to become their shepherd. You lovingly spread the faith, healed the sick, and laid down your life as a martyr. Please pray for us and our families that we may be kept safe from all illness, especially illnesses of the throat, and pray that we will have the same courage you had to be a witness to Christ, even to the point of death.
