ST JOSEPH OF CUPERTINO NOVENA
"Prayer and quiet service: these are our victorious weapons."
~ Pope Francis, Urbi et Orbi blessing
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
St Joseph of Cupertino, who patiently bore all of life's difficulties, your secret was Christ the crucified Saviour who said: “When I will be lifted up, I will draw all people to myself.” You were always spiritually lifted up. Give aviators courage and protection, and may they always keep in mind your greatly uplifting example. Amen.
O God, who made all the elements, and gave man dominion over land and sea, Bless us, who would now conquer air. Hold up our wings with your Almighty Hand. Calm the winds as once you calmed the waves of Galilee. St. Raphel, St. Gabriel, St. Michael, Archangels of Mighty Wings, Protect us as we fly. Mary, Queen of earth and sky, pray for our happy landing. St Joseph of Cupertino, pray for us. Amen.
