Today’s Blessing Prayer: Saturday greetings and blessings to all. I hope your Saturday is starting off well! The bitter cold has return to us he in Pelham. I hope wherever you are it is a little warmer.
Today is the Feast of St. Blaise. Traditionally on this day throats are blessed with the candles that were blessed yesterday on the Feast of the Presentation. So, if you cannot make your way to church today, it is my prayer through the intercession of St. Blaise, bishop and martyr, may God deliver you from every disease of the throat and from every other illness: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
And even if you don’t struggle with any diseases of the throat or any illness for that matter may God bless you today with a day rich in God’s love… wherever you are, whatever this day will bring your way I pray in the hope you have found and will continue to find many blessings as you live out this day! Enjoy your Saturday and my you find sometime for rest and relaxation today so that you will be refreshed and ready for whatever life throws your way! Blessings and peace to all today and every day! Peace in Christ's Passion...Fr. Paul.
Fr. Paul R. Fagan, C.P.
