When homes are slow in selling, St. Joseph makes an appearance somewhere in America’s front lawn helping to provide divine support. Even I used the ubiquitous statue during a particularly slow period when I was selling my last home. And it did sell shortly after we buried the statue.
Since the slowdown in real estate sales has happened, sales of the statues have taken off. I figured I would be of help and offer some advice and directions on the burial of the St. Joseph statues.
Directions for burying a St. Joseph Statue:
Dig a hole near your For Sale sign by the street approximately 3 inches deeper than the statue. If you have no yard, use a large plant pot.
Place the St. Joseph statue facing the street in the hole.
When covering the statue, prayers should be said. They are very often included in the packaging. I have the prayer at the end of this post past the jump.
Once you have sold you home, remove the statue and place in your new home.
And there you go. Again, many will scoff at the use of the statue but when the market is slow and you are a believer, it can not hurt.
PRAYER TO SAINT JOSEPH FOR SELLING A HOUSEO, Saint Joseph, you who taught our Lord the carpenter's trade, and saw to it that he was always properly housed, hear my earnest plea. I want you to help me now as you helped your foster-child Jesus, and as you have helped many others in the matter of housing. I wish to sell this [house/property] quickly, easily, and profitably and I implore you to grant my wish by bringing me a good buyer, one who is eager, compliant, and honest, and by letting nothing impede the rapid conclusion of the sale. Dear Saint Joseph, I know you would do this for me out of the goodness of your heart and in your own good time, but my need is very great now and so I must make you hurry on my behalf. Saint Joseph, I am going to place you in a difficult position with your head in darkness and you will suffer as our Lord suffered, until this [house/property] is sold. Then, Saint Joseph, i swear before the cross and God Almighty, that i will redeem you and you will receive my gratitude and a place of honour in my home. Amen.
