Feast of St. Joseph of Cupertino

Double (1955 Calendar): September 18

Today is the Feastday of St. Joseph of Cupertino.  The following is taken from the St. Benedict Center:
Saint Joseph of Cupertino was a Franciscan, a man of simple and innocent mind, who was first admitted and then dismissed by the Capuchins and later accepted by the Conventuals. Through sheer childlike simplicity he managed to learn enough theology to be ordained a priest. His love for God was so great that the mere mention of the name of Jesus would put him into an ecstasy. At Mass he was seen dozens of times floating in mid-air, in rapture. After a life of great humiliations, he finally departed from this world at the age of sixty.
I have written a highly-visited post on him previously regarding his Prayer for Success in Final Exams.  Please see that post and pray for his intercession, especially if you are taking any upcoming examinations or classwork this year.
