St. Joseph of Copertino, by Rev. Angelo Pastrovicchi, translated by Rev. Francis S. Laing
Saint Joseph of Copertino (Cupertino in Spanish), who lived from 1603-1663, is one of the truly unusual saints of the Church. He was born in a stable and was so poor in school that he passed his exam for the priesthood only because the bishop asked the one question he was prepared for. Nonetheless, he developed great wisdom and knowledge of holy things. He performed severe penances, such as wearing a heavy chain around his waist and fasting seven times a year for forty days each! But he was most famous for his ecstatic flights or levitation, of which seventy are recorded in the acts of his beatification. He levitated almost daily at Mass sometimes for two hours. People flocked to him because of his kindness, and so many attended his Masses that the church could not contain them.

St. Joseph worked numerous miracles and, like St. Francis of Assisi, even spoke with animals. On one occasion he raised to life a flock of sheep that had been killed by enormous hailstones. Although he could smell the stench of sin in wrongdoers, he himself exuded a lovely bodily perfume. He performed exorcisms by reciting the Litany of Loreto, and the devil even said of him: "Friar Joseph is the worst foe we have." This Biography, portraying one of the great saints of the Franciscan Order, was written in 1753, at the time of his beatification. It is based on the Acta Sanctorum and the offical documentation from the process for his beatification. Canonized in 1767, St. Joseph of Copertino is the Patron of Students and of those who fly.

Welcome to LibriVox! Chapters 1-3 are yours. Please read the first post of this thread carefully.

Please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. It can be your real name, forum name or a pseudonym ~ whatever you prefer

Also, since this is your first recording, we ask that you send in a 1-minute test recording. This is not an audition, it's just to make sure the sound quality and the recording settings are all right - often things can be improved at the outset that are difficult to fix later. Please go to https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=1-Minute_Test to find out what to record for your 1-minute test, and how to upload the recording. In the LibriVox Uploader, please select 'tests - tests' from the MC drop-down, and then post your test recording in the Listeners Wanted forum, rather than in this thread - you'll get feedback more quickly there.

Thanks, and have fun!

By the way, should I record the preface as well before chapter one?

Hi,

No, I decided to leave it off of this project as it didn't add much to the text. :-)

All yours, Tatiana ~ thank you!

I always try to have a saint book going as a group project. I'll try to remember to let you know when the next one goes up. Usually when one gets filled. :-)

Flipped through the book at random and it seemed like chapter 11 was as good a place to start as any. 9:06
