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.
St. Blaise, gracious benefactor of mankind
and faithful servant of God,
who for the love of our Saviour
didst 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 fulfil 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.
