St. Joseph Cupertino

Since yesterday was the feast of St. Joseph Cupertino we watched The Reluctant Saint  I had never seen it before and it was pretty good.  I loved the part when the other priest/friar accused St. Joseph of being possessed because he floated in an ecstasy of prayer yet St. Joseph remained humble and accepted the humiliation.  I thrive on the sufferings of the saints.  I did decide that he is one of my patrons since he was forever getting into scrapes and little messes and troubles because he was so stupid in his own way.... I can relate!  However, he was silent and didn't try to talk his way out of the undesirable situations he got in.... I'll try to learn that lesson (haha- I know... good luck!)
