Saint Blaise was a bishop and martyr. According to legend, he was able to heal a young boy who was dying with nothing more than a simple blessing. Saint Blaise is honored with a feast on February third every year. During the feast, throats are blessed and candles are lit in commemoration of the boy he healed. Saint Blaise is the patron saint of pets, weavers, wild animals and doctors. The Saint Blaise pewter statue by Jeweled Cross is handcrafted and beautifully depicts the saint in full bishop regalia.
