Ok Steve,

Let me walk you through this again!!

1. Have it blessed.

2. Upside down in front yard with face facing the home.

3. Say St Joseph prayer

Now, as additional insurance there is a St Joseph prayer site and I said the #1 prayer EVERY DAY for 2 weeks. Now, I know what your thinking...... ;D ;D BUT WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO LOSE (Except your home)

My husband thinks it's the biggest joke but ok, maybe our selling our home had NOTHING to do with St Joe, .............. but....................Maybe it did............wooooooooooooooooooooo!!! :bow: :bow:

I'm gonna do one better. The next time I go to the house I'm taking a bottle of wine, a loaf of bread, and I'll have to stop at the store to buy some fish (Cause I sure as hell can't catch any) and maybe St Joey can work me a miracle. Or is this the wrong guy? I slept during catechism class. Maybe the big guy upstairs will forgive me. Geesh!

Nancy -

Just take it to any Catholic church. You don't have to be Catholic. (Read to see where I had mine done)

You might give them a little something for the collection plate.

Nither my husband or I are Catholic.

Darby, Are you supposed to dig St Joe up and take him with you to your new home? I heard this somewhere before, problem was when we went to find ours we could not find him. Guess he was happy.

We buried St. Joseph, said the prayers and have not had a single showing since! I am discouraged.

IT WORKS!!! Our townhouse up north was on the market 5&1/2 months. There were NO showings the last month. We went up north for a week and on 9/8 we buried St. Joseph. It took 8 DAYS to receive an offer and sell the place.

Hang in there Steve -

As ya'll know (See, I'm Southern already), 3 weeks after burying St. Joseph we had a contract on the house (and I was such a doubter!!!)

Now we're in TV and having a ball (after 1.5 weeks of cardboard diving)!! For all of you out there - Hang in there with Steve. When it's meant to be, it will be!!

(Sure, easy for me to say now!)

I actually saw Darbyduff's stature of St. Joseph last evening. He's just a little guy but very effective! Remember though, that Darbyduff followed detailed instructions:
1) Have St. Joe blessed (it doesn't have to be at a funeral though --see DD's post on July 17th)
2) Bury upside down in front yard.
3) Say daily prayers, even if not Catholic.
4) After your home sells, remember to dig up St. Joseph and proudly take him to your new home.
Congratulations, Darbyduff! Your new home in The Villages is beautiful and St. Joseph has a new place of honor ----beats being upside down buried in CO.

I ordered a St Joseph statue on Ebay. Should receive it before too long. Sure hope it helps my son sell his place in Recreation Plantation. He wants to move closer to Orlando where his true love lives.
