St. Blase (d. 316)
We know more about the devotion to St. Blase by Christians around the
world than we know about the saint himself. His feast is observed as a
holy day in some Eastern Churches. The Council of Oxford, in 1222,
prohibited servile labor in England on Blase?s feast day. The Germans and
Slavs hold him in special honor and for decades many United States
Catholics have sought the annual St. Blase blessing for their throats

Lord, forgive the wrong I have done. ~Psalm 32

Jesus said to them,?A prophet is not without honor except in his native
place and among his own kin and in his own house.? So he was not able to
perform any mighty deed there, apart from curing a few sick people by
laying his hands on them. He was amazed at their lack of faith. ~Mark

It is easy for us to judge others. Then we can be confronted with our
error. Jesus had been judged by many ... as not being special because He
was one of them ... they knew him and His family. But he received great
honor from people farther away from home. When we're tempted not to listen
to relatives and friends we can admit to the possibility that God is
speaking to us through them. Let us be open to the many ways God reaches
out to us.

.=: P R A Y E R    F O R    T H E    D A Y :=.

I pray that I may be bad at judging others. I pray that I may be aware of
God's presence in others, especially in family members, friends and people
I have pre-judged.

We pray for the people of Haiti. We pray for great respect for life from
natural conception to natural death.  We pray for an end of terrorism and
war, for the safety of our troops and their families at home.

May God Bless you and those you love, and keep you safe!

Father Pat
