Prayer by Emma ’17
Today, February 3rd, is the feast day of Saint Blaise, who is known for his miraculous healing of a boy’s throat using candles. In the church on this day, the ritual of the Blessing of the Throats is performed. Our throats are the source of our voices, and how we use our voices has a major impact on our daily lives and the lives of those around us. It is important that we always remember to use our voices for good, whether it is being a voice for the voiceless, encouraging someone, spreading positivity, or sharing the word and message to God.
Let us pray:
Send us the Holy Spirit to open our eyes, fill our hearts, and raise our voices with the words of your message, so as to the works of justice we are called to do. Help us avoid using our voices for evil so that we may be brought ever closer to you.
Mary Seat of Wisdom, Pray for us.
