ST. JOSEPH HOME SALE ITEMS

St. Joseph, the husband of Mary and earthly Father of Jesus Christ, is honored as the patron saint of married couples, families, carpenters and workingmen. March 19, his feast day, is especially celebrated by people of Italian and Polish descent.

Over the years, the tradition arose of St. Joseph having a special power in real estate transactions. European nuns buried a medal with his likeness on property they hoped to aquire for convents. Gradually the medals were replaced with statues and the focus changed from buying to selling.

The statue is buried upside down in the front yard with the feet pointing to heaven. It may face towards the home (or towards the street if you want your neighbor's home to sell!) The location of the statue can vary: by the "For Sale" sign, in a flower pot (popular for condo owners), etc.. As long as you can find it once the home has sold. After the home has sold, the statue should be removed from the ground and given a place of honor in your new home.

                                                    How to Bury a St Joseph Statue

                                                    St Joseph is most commonly buried upside down facing the house. Some say that this tradition goes back from what is called the “degradation of the saints”. At that time the tradition was that you threatened the saints by burying them and with that saying to the saints “I will keep you with your head down in the dirt until you sell my house for me”. Now days, the tradition to bury a statue of St Joseph is still the same, but it’s not very common to threaten him, instead we pray to his good will and pray that he will help us with a fast, smooth and profitable sale.

                                                    St Joseph statue – Burial instructions:

                                                    • Bury the statue in the yard in the front of the house. Favorable spots are either close to the “For Sale” sign or close to the road.

                                                    • Bury the statue upsidedown, facing the house.

                                                    • Pray to Saint Joseph when you are burying him and keep praying until the house is sold.

                                                    • But the most important part is to have faith all the time, in yourself, in your Sale and in Saint Joseph.

                                                    • After your house is sold take him with you to your new home and put him in a place of honor.

                                                    • If you live in a condo, bury the statue of St Joseph in a pot.
