Saint Blase

February 3rd

He is mentioned in the ancient Western Martyrologies which bear the name of St. Jerome. Ado and Usuard, with several more ancient manuscript Martyrologies, quoted by Chatelain, place his name on the 15th. In the holy wars his relics were dispersed over the West, and his veneration was propagated by many miraculous cures, especially of sore throats.
