The Miracle of St. Joseph of Cupertino – Giuseppe Nogari

What is there not to like? A flying saint! Sadly, his claims are discredited and he was also denounced to the Inquisition. An ascetic Franciscan, he is the patron saint of air travelers, aviators, astronauts, people with learning difficulties, test takers and poor students.

You can pray to the saint before an examination:

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.

Good luck!
