Feast of Saint Blaise

We got our throats blessed today after the intercessions at Mass. DH, a fairly recent convert, got his blessed for the first time ever. It was Fr. Robert's first time blessing throats as he is a new priest.

In case you didn't know, the blessing of the throats, and the imposition of ashes on Ash Wednesday are two things that anyone can participate in because they are not sacraments.

Happy Saint Blaise Day!

Dymphna's favorite quotes


"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
