St. Joseph of Cupertino

Today is the celebration of St. Joseph of Cupertino in the Extraordinary Form, or the Traditional Roman Rite. St. Joseph was a simple by holy Conventual Franciscan Friar who had the gift of levitation. He is the patron of students. I prayed to him every day in the seminary and credit his intercession to my success.

Two prayers to St. Joseph of Cupertino:


O Great St. Joseph of Cupertino who while on earth did obtain from God the grace to be asked at your examination only the questions you knew, obtain for me a like favour in the examinations for which I am now preparing. In return I promise to make you known and cause you to be invoked. Through Christ our Lord. St. Joseph of Cupertino, Pray for us. Amen.


O St. Joseph of Cupertino who by your prayer obtained from God to be asked at your examination, the only preposition you knew. Grant that I may like you succeed in the (here mention the name of Examination eg. History paper I ) examination. In return I promise to make you known and cause you to be invoked. O St. Joseph of Cupertino pray for me. O Holy Ghost enlighten me. Our Lady of Good Studies pray for me. Sacred Head of Jesus, Seat of divine wisdom, enlighten me.

There is a great little move about his life called The Reluctant Saint. You can watch it below.
