The Catholic Church hon­ors to­day the life and works of Saint Joseph (San Jose) of Cu­per­tino, the pa­tron saint of peo­ple with men­tal hand­i­cap, stu­dents, examinees, and air trav­el­ers. Com­mem­o­ra­tive rites will be held in many parts of the coun­try in honor of the Ital­ian saint and Fran­cis­can mystic. In Que­zon City, the San Jose de Cu­per­tino Cen­ter for Spe­cial Chil­dren in La Vista, Loy­ola Heights, a school for chil­dren with spe­cial needs, was built and placed un­der his pa­tron­age. Church of­fi­cials en­cour­age the Catholic faith­ful, the youth in par­tic­u­lar, to ask for Saint Joseph’s in­ter­ces­sion dur­ing ex­am­i­na­tions and when fac­ing dif­fi­cul­ties in school.
