Catholic tradition describes St. Joseph as the patron saint of workers, and Pope Pius IX declared him to also be the patron and protector of the Church. In addition, he is regarded as a role model for fathers. For this reason, Catholics often dedicate prayers to Saint Joseph for protection, vocation, marriage, happiness, death, and even for the sale of a home.
According to urban legends and historians, a group of nuns had difficulty buying land in the 1500s. As a result, they turned to the legendary patriarch St. Joseph. Their faith in St. Joseph inspired them to bury a statue of him near the land they wanted to purchase, and they prayed for his intercession to the Lord. Soon after, the nun’s prayers were answered.
Burying the statue of St. Joseph represented an incredible act of faith. Having asked for assistance from St. Joseph, the nuns intensified the power of their prayer to gain the property they desperately desired.
Praying and following this ritual is believed to bring good fortune when selling a home. St. Joseph is sometimes referred to as “The Real Estate Agent” since God can influence people in many ways through him, including selling a home and relieving financial anxiety.
As part of the ritual, an 8-inch or 3-inch statue of St. Joseph is usually buried on the front lawn. Many people bury it within 2-3 feet of the “For Sale” sign and head down, facing the home. From this point on, praying the St. Joseph prayer and adding the novena sayings every day is very important.
