St. Joseph Cupertino

Thursday, September 18th, 2014

Ave Maria Meditations

joseph_cupertino[1]“Clearly, what God wants above all is our will which we received as a free gift from God in creation and possess as though our own. When a man trains himself to acts of virtue, it is with the help of grace from God from whom all good things come that he does this. The will is what man has as his unique possession.”

St. Joseph of Cupertino, from the reading for his feast in the Franciscan breviary.

Patron Saint of:  Air travelers, Astronauts, Pilots, students, exam takers.  Feast Day: September 18

Sep 18 – Homily – Fr Maximilian W: Simplicity and Humility

Thursday, September 18th, 2014
Click to Play

Homily #140918n ( 07min) Play – The Gospel for today’s Mass underscores simplicity and humility, the two outstanding virtues of St. Joseph of Cupertino.  This holy 17th century friar showed an aptitude for neither his studies nor for almost anything else, and he had many difficulties in entering religious life, but he finally attained to great heights of holiness.  A man of intense prayer, God endowed him with mystical gifts, particularly that of being raised above the ground by supernatural means.  Many trials and persecutions came his way, but the lowly friar always preserved that simplicity and humility which enabled him to bear all with serenity.  St. Joseph of Cupertino is a great example to us of the meekness and humility we should exhibit in carrying the daily crosses which come our way.  Let us follow his lead.
Ave Maria!

Sep 16 – Homily – Fr Maximilian W: The Vocation to Sacrifice

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014
Click to Play

Homily #140916n ( 05 min) Play – Our Lord shows His compassion for His people in today’s Gospel by driving out demons and ordering His followers to implore God for more ministers to labor in the harvest — that is, in the care of souls.  Fr. Maximilian notes the divinity of Christ as shown by his power over evil spirits, and then reflects on how necessary are vocations to the priesthood and religious life.  This is a difficult calling, entailing great self-sacrifice.  Today’s martyrs, Cornelius and Cyprian, martyrs of the early Church, show us how to answer this call of Christ in a radical way, even to the point of giving up their lives.  Let us imitate their spirit of sacrifice, and pray for more faithful souls who will do the same.
Ave Maria!
