PRAYER TO SAINT JOSEPH OF CUPERTINO

This powerful prayer is very effective in examinations. It has to be said before appearing in the examination. There are two variants to this prayer. Both the prayers are equally effective. You can choose any one of these:

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.

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.

St. Joseph of Cupertino, Pray for us.

Amen.

SAINT JOSEPH OF CUPERTINO

St. Joseph of Cupertino joined the Conventual Franciscan order and he struggled greatly with his studies. People often thought he was stupid.

The best he could do was to learn a small portion of the material he was supposed to know, and then pray that he would be asked about the portion that he did know. He miraculously passed his exams and was able to become a priest.

He was called “The Flying Friar” because he often levitated off the ground while deep in prayer. His ability to levitate was a difficulty for him because people would come to watch him like a spectacle.

His gift of levitation taught him to be humble and obedient. While with the Franciscans he would levitate at the mention of any holy thing and only a command from his superior could bring him to the ground.

He was investigated because of his anti-gravitational activities and was subsequently moved into seclusion.

He died at 60 years old and after his death miracles were reported at his tomb. He was canonized 100 years later.

He is patron of test takers, students, mental handicaps, air travelers, astronauts, pilots, and is invoked by children, adults and the elderly who are unloved, abandoned or neglected.
