Tuesday, February 3, was the Feast of St. Blaise.
St. Blaise was a physician and a martyr. A blessing of the throat with the use of two crossed candles is traditionally offered on the feast of St. Blaise. In these pictures we see Fr. Israel, Fr. Rohan, and Msgr. Tom giving the blessing of throats after one of the Masses on the Feast of St. Blaise.
