|Saint Apollonia Venerated
The Feast Day of Saint Apollonia is celebrated on February 9. Many Catholics ask her blessings and wear a Saint Apollonia medal or Saint Apollonia necklace on her feast day, asking her to ward off any ailment of the teeth. Catholic parents often give their children a Saint Apollonia charm or pendant to wear each day to prevent problems with their teeth and gums.
St. Apollonia Prayer
O Glorious Apollonia, patron saint of dentistry and refuge to all those suffering from diseases of the teeth, I consecrate myself to thee to number me among thy clients. Assist me by your intercession with God in my daily work and intercede with Him to obtain for me a happy death. Pray that my heart, like thine may be inflamed with the love of Jesus and Mary, through Christ our Lord. Amen. O my God, bring me safe through temptation and strengthen me as thou didst our own patron Apollonia, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
