Lesson 617: St. Blasť


Each year on February 3rd, the Church celebrates the Feast of St. Blasť. The Feast of St. Blasť is situated immediately after the Feast of the Purification of our Lady (called Candlemas). On February 2nd the priest blesses candles and we carry them in Procession to mark the end of the Christmas Season. Today, the next day, we have the ancient tradition of having our throats blessed by a priest who holds blessed candles. In this lesson we will study the life of St. Blasť and learn about the tradition of the Blessing of Throats. We will also learn about the Fourteen Holy Helpers, of which, St. Blasť is one of them.
