Religious News Roundup-February 11, 2005

Today is the commemoration of St. Vlassios of Sebaste, also known as St. Blaise.

The Orthodox calendar of saints says of St. Blaise that

Divine grace, through which he healed the diseases of men and beasts, and especially of infants, made his name famous. He contested for the Faith under Licinius in the year 316. Saint Blaise is invoked for the healing of throat ailments.

Handy to know in the winter months.

If you're in Wiota, Wisconsin this Sunday, stop by Wiota Lutheran Church. They're having a Norwegian dinner at 2:00:

The menu includes Norwegian meatballs, ham, lefse, mashed potatoes, corn, green beans, cole slaw and Norwegian goodies.

We're there, as long as the goodies don't include fish.
