Joseph of Cupertino, a simple young man thought by many in his village to be an idiot, is pressured to enter a monastery. He does so, and surprises everyone by passing the entrance exam to study for the priesthood. But this is only the first of many surprises from the man who would become Saint Joseph Cupertino.Written by

Brother Giuseppe! I knew you'd be here someday.
[overjoyed that the Bishop remembers him]
How are the lambs?
Oh, they are sheep now, your Excellency.
Oh yes, of course. Has it been that long? And the studies - they've been hard, eh?
[sighs and nods]
But mostly I miss the stables. That's where I really belong, I shouldn't be here.
Let me be the judge of that, Giuseppe. There will be many lost sheep to care for.

Truth is Simple
God is simple as it is the essence of our life and existence. Theology and scriptures tend to complicate it as we humans love intellectualism and find it exciting. The movie and the life of the saint Joseph shows us just this simple thing. The wonderful explanation of Trinity in the three folds of the blanket, being humble even when others label you as saint and even accepting the ordeal of exorcising of the devil in full humility, has shown how a man of God is simple, loving and does not hate anybody. He has love and compassion for others. The scene when Joseph goes for begging and sees a destitute mother nursing her child is simply enhancing his character. He is a beggar but he willingly gives away food and a piece of cloth to the woman. It was touching to see that immediately after that the boys loot his collected food and beat Joseph. It is the same woman who lovingly returns the cloth covering his bare bruised back. This is true in all religions whether Christian, Hindu, Budhhism, Jew etc that Love, Charity and not harming others is the foundation, rest is only sophistry. Wionderfully enlightening Movie.
