Saint Blaise has been invoked on behalf of the sick, especially those afflicted with illnesses of the throat.  For decades U.S. Catholics have sought the traditional Blessing of Throats on his Feast Day.  In conjunction with his Feast Day our partner parishes have each scheduled a Saint Blaise Blaze or bonfire.
