Little Rock - l'hrough the interces- sion of St. Blase, bishop and martyr...." Catholics who have their throats blessed the weekend of Feb. 3-4 may notice some changes. Fr. Francis Malone, diocesan Director of Liturgy, says that in addition to priests and deacons, lay ministers may now give the blessing. The Book of Blessings, published in October, 1989, is the source for the change. The National Conference of Catholic Bishops approved the book and forwarded it to Rome, where the Holy See gave its approval. At the discretion of the pastor, lay ministers may help administer the bless- ing, or the blessing may be given to the whole congregation at once without touching the throat of each individual with blessed candles.
