Blaise had a special job: carrying up Baby Jesus to the manger. The priest called the children up to the altar for the homily. He asked some of the kids what Christmas meant to them, and Blaise said "umm, presents." Yikes. We had a talk.
As you can see, Blaise does not always have saintly behavior! Blaise's name, however, comes from a saint whose feast day we observe every February. St. Blaise is known for blessing throats, as he once saved a young boy choking on a fish bone. He also is the patron saint of wild animals. Perhaps he can intercede on behalf of our cat? We expect that our Blaise will have lots of spunk, just like the saint he's named after!
