SAT’s Tomorrow? Here’s a Saint for You!

St. Joseph of Cupertino– patron saint of exams! (Exactly what I need right now!)

You can find this excerpt all over the internet:

“This powerful prayer is very effective in examinations. It has to be said before appearing in the examination. There are two variants to this prayer. Both the prayers are equally effective. You can choose any one of these: 

First Prayer
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.
Amen. 

Second Prayer
O St. Joseph of Cupertino who by your prayer obtained from God to be asked at your examination, the only preposition you knew. Grant that I may like you succeed in the (here mention the name of Examination eg. History paper I ) examination. In return I promise to make you known and cause you to be invoked.
O St. Joseph of Cupertino pray for me
O Holy Ghost enlighten me
Our Lady of Good Studies pray for me
Sacred Head of Jesus, Seat of divine wisdom, enlighten me. 

Remember, when you succeed in the exams then you should thank St. Joseph of Cupertino and make him known.”

 

Good luck!

  1. My great-aunt is a Sister of St. Agnes, and Cupertine is her “nun name”. They had to pick three names to be considered, but she didn’t get any of those. She said how she really didn’t like the name, but once she got to know the saint, she saw how well it fit her!

    Thanks for posting this! I’ve been looking for a good before-test prayer! 🙂
