Bury a St Joseph statue

St Joseph
is mostly common
buried upside down facing the house. Some say that this tradition goes back from what is called the “degradation of the saints”. At that time the tradition was that you threatened the saints by burying them and with that saying to the saints  “I will keep you with your head down in the dirt until you sell my house for me”.
Now days, the tradition to bury a statue of St Joseph is still the same, but it’s not very common to threaten him, instead we pray to his good will and pray that he will help us with a fast, smooth and profitable sale.

You can read more about this tradition and different ways people tend to it in the articles section. Also read testimonials from people who have already bought, buried and sold their house with Faith and St Joseph.
