Ills of the throat!
We may have experienced inflammations in our tonsils, sore throats, and other bacterial and viral throat infections, so we ask God for healing through the merits and intercession of St. Blaise. However, ills of the throat in spiritual parlance, manifest when we find it difficult and challenging to speak the truth, confess our sins and gain freedom/healing and when we fail to become the voice of the voiceless. Therefore, our good and caring God through Jesus Christ and His Church reminds us today through the merits and intercession of St. Blaise to seek for healing of the ills of our throats. Let us pray: “O GOD, deliver us through the intercession of Thy holy bishop and martyr Blase, from all evil of soul and body, especially from all ills of the throat; and grant us the grace to make a good confession in the confident hope of obtaining Thy pardon, and ever to praise with worthy lips Thy most holy name. Through the merits of Saint Blaise‘s suffering and martyrdom, we also pray that all who are suffering be healed by God’s unconditional love and boundless mercy. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.” St. Blaise – Pray for us!
