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.


Saint Joseph of Cupertino (or Giuseppe da Copertino, born Guiseppe Mara Desa) (June 17, 1603 - September 18, 1663) was an Italian saint. He was said to have been remarkably unclever, but prone to miraculous levitation and intense ecstasies that left him gaping. He was canonized in 1767.

Because of his many 'flights', St. Joseph is the patron saint of pilots and of those traveling by air. He is also the patron of those undergoing examinatikons of any kind. This powerful prayer is very effective in examination. It has to be said before appearing in the examination.
