Saint Blaise Novena

Jan. 25th to Feb. 3nd

Preparatory Prayer

Almighty and Eternal God!
With lively faith and reverently
worshiping Thy Divine Majesty,
I prostrate myself before Thee and
invoke with filial trust Thy
supreme bounty and mercy.
Illuminate the darkness of my
intellect with a ray of Thy heavenly
light and inflame my heart with
the fire of Thy divine love,
that I may contemplate the great
virtues and merits of the saint in
whose honor I make this novena,
and following his example imitate,
like him,
the life of Thy divine Son.

I beseech Thee to grant graciously,
through the merits and intercession of this
powerful Helper,
the petition which through him
I humbly place before Thee,
devoutly saving,
“Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”
Vouchsafe graciously to hear it,
if it redounds to Thy greater glory
and to the salvation of my soul.

Prayer in honor of St. Blaise

O God,
deliver us through the intercession
of Thy holy bishop and martyr Blaise,
from all evil of soul and body,
especially from all ills of the throat;
and grant us the grace to make a
good confession in the confident hope of
obtaining Thy pardon,
and ever to praise with worthy lips Thy most holy name.
Through Christ our Lord.

Invocation of St. Blaise

St. Blaise,
gracious benefactor of mankind
and faithful servant of God,
who for the love of our Savior did
suffer so many tortures with patience and resignation;
I invoke thy powerful intercession.
Preserve me from all evils of soul
and body.
Because of thy great merits God
endowed thee with the special grace
to help those that suffer from ills of the throat;
relieve and preserve me from them,
so that I may always be
able to fulfill my duties,
and with the aid of God’s grace perform good works.
I invoke thy help as special physician of souls,
that I may confess my sins sincerely in the
holy sacrament of Penance
and obtain their forgiveness.
I recommend to thy merciful intercession
also those who unfortunately concealed
a sin in confession.
Obtain for them the grace to accuse
themselves sincerely and contritely
of the sin they concealed,
of the sacrilegious confessions and
communions they made,
and of all the sins they committed since then,
so that they may receive pardon,
the grace of God, and the remission of the eternal punishment.


My Lord and my God!
I offer up to Thee my petition in union
with the bitter passion and
death of Jesus Christ,
Thy Son,
together with the merits of
His Immaculate and Blessed Mother,
Mary ever virgin,
and of all the saints,
particularly with those of the holy Helper
in whose honor I make this novena.
Look down upon me,
merciful Lord!
Grant me Thy grace and Thy love,
and graciously hear my prayer.
