God of understanding,
Your Son, Jesus, came to teach us about suffering.
As we honor Saint Blasé,
may he intercede for all who suffer
from ailments of the throat.
Heal also the spiritual diseases of the throat
like unkind speech, lies and curses.
Grant this through Jesus, the Christ,
now and forever.
Saint Blasé, PRAY FOR US.
to show us the beauty of holiness,
You caused the soul of Saint Scholastica
to go up into heaven in the form of a dove.
Help us to trust that our prayers are heard.
May the example of Saint Scholastica
show us how to live in peace and purity of heart.
May we one day arrive at the heavenly banquet
where you and the Holy Spirit live and reign
through Jesus, the Christ, our Lord.
Saint Scholastica, PRAY FOR US.
