Just a simple blog of a Secular Franciscan trying to live with a Franciscan focus.

Joseph-tastical humor 

Ah, the pictures alone made me hoot out loud -- check out The Curt Jester's take on the (misguided) "practice" of homeowners burying statues of Joseph in the hopes of selling their homes.

Praying to Joseph for his intercession in selling your house is perfectly OK, as is purchasing a statue and using that as an aid to prayer. But burying his statue -- upside-down, even! -- is just plain stupid and smacks of superstition.
