Saint of the Week
 

FEBRUARY 3—BLAISE was an early fourth century bishop of Sebaste in Armenia.  During the persecution of Christians under Emperor Licinius, Blaise was imprisoned by the Roman governor of Cappadocia and later martyred about 316.  Legend says that Blaise was a great healer.  Most famously, a mother once came to the saint seeking help for her child, who was choking on a bone, and the bishop saved the boy with a prayer and the sign of the cross.  Blaise is the patron of those suffering ailments of the throat.
