He can fly, he can fly, he can fly!


...St. Joseph of Cupertino. One of the delights of the EF form of Mass is getting to celebrate in a formal way, all those saints that were shunted aside from the church calendar. Joseph, while saying Mass could levitate. So naturally, the powers that were wouldn't let him do a public Mass. He died in 1660, so it wasn't some "well, that was so far back is it like a St. George killing an actual dragon" thing.

Some genius decided he would be the perfect patron saint for Aviators. And I love having this unique saint be the one celebrated on my birthday.

Off to adoration and Mass shortly, where I can get some peace.

He's the patron saint of getting questions you can answer in exams.
