By Cheryl Dickow A dear Christian friend recently asked me, "Why do Catholics bury statues of St. " Apparently my friend's Catholic neighbor was putting his house up for sale and along with pounding in a "For Sale" sign in the front lawn, buried a statue. Joseph, was given the alarming response, "It's good luck! But a Catholic response that says, "It's good luck! It is a downright violation of what the Catechism teaches on superstitions and thus very, very bad for the image of Catholics let alone the practitioner of such an act.
However, unlike other Christian faiths, we are not limited to those who are with us now, in the flesh and blood, but we also rely on those who have gone before us, the whole of the "Communion of Saints." We also have what are called "Patron Saints."

The Church counts on us to understand her teachings and move forward in wisdom and knowledge so that all we do reflects what the Church teaches us about our faith.
Co-researcher Crystal Smith- Spangler, who is also an instructor of medicine at Stanford’s School of Medicine, said: ‘Some believe that organic food is always healthier and more nutritious.
We were a little surprised that we didn’t find that.’The researchers did find organic produce was 30 per cent less likely to be contaminated with pesticides than conventional fruit and vegetables, but not guaranteed to be pesticide-free, while pesticide levels of all foods came within the allowable safety limits.
But how many other sites are out there, just waiting to pull us in? Joseph as he was a carpenter, although the Patron Saint of the Universal Church, is also seen as a Patron Saint of homes and, for the past few decades or more, home sales.
