In some churches the blessing of throats is also given today for the benefit of the faithful who were not able to attend Mass on St. Blaise’s Day.
Announce that the faithful should bring in their blessed palms from last Palm Sunday during the week and next Sunday, so that these may be burned to make the ashes for Ash Wednesday.
