Why Bury A Statue Of St Joseph

       Why would someone bury a statue in their yard to sell their home?  Is it for good luck or is it Faith?  Why St. Joseph? I am going to go with the Faith answer. As a Catholic , I believe we can ask the Saints to pray for us.   St Joseph was chosen because he is the patron saint of  married couples, families, carpenters and workingmen. 

Over the years, the tradition arose of St. Joseph having a special power in helping with real estate needs. European nuns buried a medal of St. Joseph  on property they hoped to acquire for convents. Gradually the medals were replaced with statues and the focus changed from buying to selling. Another tradition suggest that German construction workers would bury St. Joseph statue in the yards of homes they were building and pray for blessings on those who would buy the homes. 


So the question remains does it help to sell your home or not?  Well, the verdict is still out but saying a few  prayers sure can not hurt along with a good realtor!
