A statue with the words St. Joseph de la capell des ex voto

Is it Latin or perhaps French/Italian.

Whichever, can anybode translate please?



Thanks for the help.

I think the answer is The Votive Chapel of St. Joseph.

This is at the Oratory of St. Joseph in Montreal.

at http://www.saint-joseph.org

Many thanks again to all

Monday 18th August.

I went to several language translators and tried Latin, Spanish, Italian but none really translated it other then to say St. Joseph the Capell not voto. I looked up voto in an online Latin dictionary and it says:


votum, voti N N
vow, pledge, religious undertaking/promise; prayer, wish; votive offering;
vot.o V 1 1 PRES ACTIVE IND 1 S
voto, votare, votui, votitus V TRANS Early
forbid, prohibit; reject, veto; be an obstacle to; prevent;

voveo, vovere, vovi, votus V
vow, dedicate, consecrate;

sounds french, and if you replace capell with chapelle, you get the following page in google:
http://www.diocese-edmundston.ca/les-saints-de-chez-nous/le.bienheureux.frere.andre.htm
This seems to be talking about St. Joseph

ex-voto means a votive offering , it has a latin origin
chapelle means vault, or chapel in french.

So I guessed this is St Joseph in the votive chapel, which i then entered into google, and got this link:

Perhaps?
