Tuesday Tip: Bury Him In The Yard

23 Apr

Saint Joseph was a just man, a tireless worker, the upright guardian of those entrusted to his care. May he always guard, protect and enlighten familes. – Pope John Paul II
**************
OK, it’s done. I took the St. Joseph to St. Michael’s Church on Sunday. I said the prayer, and buried him in the front yard yesterday. Now, I just have to wait for the perfect buyer for my house.

The tradition of burying a statue of St. Joseph in the yard of a home that you’re trying to sell goes back thousands of years. It is believed that because St. Joseph is the patron saint of home and family if you pray to him for help when you’re selling your home and you bury a statue of him on the property he will help you by sending buyers to the home so that you will get a quick offer on the home. Time and time again people that are trying to sell their homes have turned to St. Joseph for help and thousands of people that have successfully sold homes are convinced that St. Joseph answered their prayers and helped sell the home.

The mind is a very powerful thing. Faith, tradition, or prayer, whatever you want to call that invisible force that makes the world go around, whatever it is, if you believe, you can make it happen.

Come on, St. Joe!!!

      Thank you, Iris. St. Joseph seems to work for many people, many faiths. I guess all you have to do is believe,

        The fairies are having a conference about staying with the house or traveling with you in your handbag. 🙂
