 Our Description

Pack of 100.

This beautiful paper holy card shows St. Blase as a bishop, blessing a child with two candles.  St. Blase is the patron of those with throat diseases and his feast day is February 3.  On the back of the card is the following prayer:

Dear St. Blase, lover of souls, you willingly bore heavy crosses in faithful imitation of Jesus.  Similarly, with Christlike compassion you cured many sufferers.  Then after undergoing horrible tortures you died as a martyr for Christ.

O compassionate St. Blase, if it is agreeable to Our Heavenly Father, obtain a cure for my ills.

Amen

Profile
     Physician. Bishop of Sebaste, Armenia. Lived in a cave on Mount Argeus. Healer of men and animals; according to legend, sick animals would come to him on their own for help, but would never disturb him at prayer.

     Agricola, governor of Cappadocia, came to Sebaste to persecute Christians. His huntsmen went into the forests of Argeus to find wild animals for the arena games, and found many waiting outside Blaise's cave. Discovered in prayer, Blaise was arrested, and Agricola tried to get him to recant his faith. While in prison, Blaise ministered to and healed fellow prisoners, including saving a child who was choking on a fish bone; this led to the blessing of throats on Blaise's feast day.

     Thrown into a lake to drown, Blaise stood on the surface and invited his persecutors to walk out and prove the power of their gods; they drowned. When he returned to land, he was martyred by being beaten, his flesh torn with wool combs (which led to his association with and patronage of those involved in the wool trade), and then beheading.

     Blaise has been extremely popular for centuries in both the Eastern and Western Churches. In 1222 the Council of Oxford prohibited servile labour in England on his feast. He is one of the Fourteen Holy Helpers
