Saint Joseph of Cupertino on God

Saint Joseph of Cupertino
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

Prayer for St. Joseph of Cupertino’s Intercession

Almighty God, You ordained that Your only-begotten Son Jesus Christ should be lifted up above the earth and draw all things to Himself; mercifully grant, by the merits and intercession of Your confessor Joseph, that we may be lifted up above all earthly desires and be found worthy to come to Him, who being God, lives and reigns with You, together in the unity of the Holy Spirit, for ever and ever. Amen.
