About St. Joseph of Cupertino

Joseph of Cupertino is most famous for levitating at prayer. Already as a child, Joseph showed a fondness for prayer. After a short career with the Capuchins, he joined the Conventual Franciscans. Following a brief assignment caring for the friary mule, Joseph began his studies for the priesthood. Though studies were very difficult for him, Joseph gained a great deal of knowledge from prayer. He was ordained in 1628.

Joseph’s tendency to levitate during prayer was sometimes a cross; some people came to see this much as they might have gone to a circus sideshow. Joseph’s gift led him to be humble, patient, and obedient, even though at times he was greatly tempted and felt forsaken by God. He fasted and wore iron chains for much of his life.

The friars transferred Joseph several times for his own good and for the good of the rest of the community. He was reported to and investigated by the Inquisition; the examiners exonerated him.

Joseph was canonized in 1767. In the investigation preceding the canonization, 70 incidents of levitation are recorded.

Prayer to St. Joseph Cupertino

St. Joseph of Cupertino,
patron saint of students,
saint of joy,
master of prayer,
enchanted by the gospel and the Eucharist,
accept my prayer with kindness.
You who always faced the dificulties of life,
without ever straying from the divine will,
to which you adhered with constant faith and commitment;
now understand the special state of mind in which I find myself
and intercede with Our Lord
so that he may grant me the grace I so need,
let me feel the divine presence,
and help me, with your example, to follow his will.
Trusting in your protection,
I renew with much faith
my intention of gratitude and good will
and I confide in your support.

Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
