St. Blaise Gifts and Collectables
Blaise was known as a healer of men and animals. Running from persecution against his religion, he settled in a cave. It is said that injured animals would come to him for aid but would never disturb him while in prayer. Hunters found animals collected outside his cave, and upon seeing him in prayer, they arrested him.
