At one time or another a homeseller and their agent started to think “How are we ever going to sell this house, we have tried everything.” Maybe they didn’t. A popular option over the years is to bury a St. Joseph Statue. This statue is known as the Patron Saint of the Home.
This all began hundreds of years ago in Europe. An order of nuns would bury their St. Joseph medal when they needed more land for convents. And guess what?? Their prayer was heard and in a short period of time they received their request. No one knows how it evolved into the statues that are used today.
Some people look at it as a superstition, some think “might as well try something crazy”, and others consider that they are putting the sale of their home in the hands of a higher power.
To use a St. Joseph statue, the tradition dictates that you find a location that you like on your property (even right next to the “For Sale” sign), and bury it upside down facing towards the house. You are supposed to ask for help until your house is sold. After it is sold you remove the statue, take it with you, and place it in your new home.
Be sure to tell us your findings, or if you know anyone who has tried it!
