Through the Intercession of Saint Blaise
This tiny window in a door in our cloister depicts Saint Blaise with wild animals. According to The Golden Legend gentle Blaise dwelt in a hermitage in the desert where birds came to feed him. He befriended and protected all manner of beasts, and hunters were not able to take any of them. Known for his goodness and gifts of healing, the sick often came to Blaise to be healed. We pray on his Memorial for the health and well-being of all in need.
