Prayer to St Joseph of Cupertino
My fiancee is on her way back from Poland. She asked me to say a prayer for her as like many of us she doesn't like flying. If the plane crashes I'm holding St Joseph of Cupertino responsible for not guiding her back safely as he is patron of air travel and I just said a prayer to him for her. When I was looking up a prayer to him I got this one for those preparing for examinations. It's hilarious!
O Great St. Joseph of Cupertino who while on earth did obtain from God the grace to be asked at your examination only the questions you knew, obtain for me a like favour in the examinations for which I am now preparing. In return I promise to make you known and cause you to be invoked.
Through Christ our Lord.
St. Joseph of Cupertino, Pray for us. Amen.
What does that mean?! '...only the questions you knew!?' In my day that was called cheating! Who'd have thought the Lord would acquiesce in such a thing!? Still, we all know what kind of 'examinations' the poor British public will be having in a couple of months time at UK airports! Skegness Town Council probably can't wait for these full body scanners to be introduced!
Meanwhile The Guardian reports that...
'The rapid introduction of full body scanners at British airports threatens to breach child protection laws which ban the creation of indecent images of children.'
This is, of course, a very good point. Has Gordon Brown ever been CRB checked? Its about time, if he hasn't. I don't think it'll be worth the paper its printed on once grown men and women are looking over children's private parts at airports, but there we go. This Government are so useless they couldn't organise an orgy in Brighton.
