  Last week I wrote on how the tradition to bury a statue of St. Joseph came to be and why a homeowner would do this to help with the sale of their home. If you would like to know the proper way to go about burying St. Joseph in your yard here is how:


1. Chose a place in your front yard to bury statue , make sure you will remember the place, a good    place is next to the “For Sale” sign.

2. Bury the statue upside down pointing towards Heaven, facing the house.

3.Pray this prayer to Saint Joseph when you are burying him and keep praying until the house is sold. Most important have Faith 
that your house will sell!

Prayer to Sell a House

O, 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.


4. After you sell your home take him with you to your new home and put him in a place of honor.

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