While Olde Dog and his Man were outside investigating because that’s what they do, Man spotted a white square in the dirt in a prominent part of the yard. It was surrounded by bushes that look like they may flower in the spring. The square appeared to be a sprinkler head. He dug it up and found St. Joseph who had been buried upside down, facing the house.
Tradition says that burying St. Joseph upside down in an honored position in the front yard will sell your home quickly. Maybe the home didn’t sell quickly, but it did sell to people who will love and care for it.
We have moved St. Joseph to a place of prominence inside to thank God for the blessings of this home.
It’s only fitting. After all, our new church home is St. Joseph’s, too.
