St. Joseph of Cupertino Comments

Franciscan mystic and the patron saint of pilots and air passengers. He was born in Cupertino, Italy. After several attempts to enter the religious life, he was accepted by the Conventual Franciscans at Grattela, where he received ordination in 1628. He soon demonstrated many gifts, including the ability to fly through the air. In 1639, because of the enmity of his fellow monks, Joseph was sent to Assisi. In 1653, the Inquisition sent him to ...

    St. Joseph of Cupertino, by your grace and through your prayers I was able to pass one important examination, for which I offer my deepest thanks. I humbly ask again for your prayers in my most recent examination, and for your help. Please pray for me once again.

    Happy Feast Day on September 18th.

    Thank you St. Joseph of Cupertino for your prayers for my son, Andy. He was offered the job he applied for. Please keep him in your prayers that this job keeps him safe and changes his world for the better. The power of prayer is so great. I will pass your name on.

    My gf and I are taking the Physical Therapy board exam tomorrow. If we pass we will be licensed to practice for life! This is the biggest test of our lives and I am writing in the hopes that St. Joseph and anyone else's prayers will help us to perform to the best of our abilities. Keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we will do the same for all of you!

    Thank you and GOD BLESS!!

    I have a BIG test all day tomorrow, and I just found out about him. I wrote the prayer down to bring with me tomorrow. Your anecdotes have been very comforting (not that one needs proof before prayer, but it'll definitely calm down my nerves) Many blessings to all, and please pray for me (and the other test takers!) Thank you & GBY

    i agree with jude.i am in medical school now.the volume of reading is immense, so it is impossible to remember everything. many times, after praying to St. Joseph of Cupertino, most of the questions on my exams happened to be on the subjects that i remembered the most. For anyone out there who is in school or needs to pass an exam, don't forget to pray to this saint. i also pray to him whenever i fly on a plane. i had the good fortune to visit Osimo, where he died. I hope God will grant me the grace to visit St. Joseph's town again in the future. May God bless all of you.

    I prayed for intercession with this saint before taking a very difficult examination that I desperately needed to pass. Now I started the praying during my early study process and I did a lot of studying. But the miraculous thing about passing the test was that most of the questions just fell under topics that I knew the best. There were so many questions that could have thrown me for a loop but the questions I received were right in my highlights. It was incredible! This saint is awesome!
