The Reluctant Saint



The Reluctant Saint (1962) - the film of the life of Giuseppe Maria Desa (June 17, 1603 – September 18, 1663) more familiarly known as Saint Joseph of Cupertino, Christian mystic, illiterate and Catholic religious and priest

In his life he had many trials.

Such was his religious vocation that when his habit was taken from him and he was expelled from the monastery he said that this caused him such great suffering that it was like  they were tearing off the very skin from his body.
