Pope Endoreses 17th Century 'Flying Monk'

Recommended Posts


The Pope has endorsed the cult of a 17th-century “flying monk”, declaring St Joseph of Copertino to be “a model for our times”. In a message marking the 400th anniversary of the birth of St Joseph, the Pope said that the Franciscan friar, who was said to amaze congregations by levitating and flying through the air, was spiritually close to our times.

He is the patron saint of aviators and students.
