Thankful

  1. 1
    Hi everyone! I would like to thank God, Mama Mary and St. Joseph of Cupertino for all the blessings and always on my side during the process of my application, during my self review and during my exam.

    To all the nurses who will be taking their NCLEX, I want you guys to believe in yourself and believe in God. Please always pray and thank God, Mama Mary and St. Joseph of Cupertino for all the Blessings. Here is a prayer to St. Joseph of Cupertino before taking the exam.

    First Prayer
    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.

    Second Prayer
    O St. Joseph of Cupertino who by your prayer obtained from God to be asked at your examination, the only preposition you knew. Grant that I may like you succeed in the (here mention the name of Examination eg. History paper I ) examination. In return I promise to make you known and cause you to be invoked.
    O St. Joseph of Cupertino pray for me
    O Holy Ghost enlighten me
    Our Lady of Good Studies pray for me
    Sacred Head of Jesus, Seat of divine wisdom, enlighten me.

    Remember, when you succeed in the exams then you should thank St. Joseph of Cupertino in the Newspaper.

    Goodluck and God Bless Us All.

    And this is why you posted it on an online nursing paper?

    There are some that believe that thanking the saint publicly is the "proper" thing to do. There are certain cultures/ethnic backgrounds that believe it/participate more than others. You can find them in some papers in an actual Novena section. They also have sections for In memoriam/dedication by the obituaries that will also contain these thankful notes to the Saints for their prayers answered.

    I think as nurses we learn to be tolerant of all cultures....that is one of the most fascinating aspects. Eastern Orthodox/Byzantine Catholics celebrate on certain days after a death it is called the Parastas (Panikhida) services for the departed on the 3rd, 9th, and 40th day....at six months and then yearly. We celebrate with food and family. some of the old school will actually do this at the grave site.

    The OP posted this becasue they are "supposed to" in thanks for prayers answered
