O, Saint Joseph,
you who taught our Lord the carpenter's trade,
and saw to it that he was always properly housed,
hear my earnest plea.
I want you to help me now as you helped your foster-child Jesus,
and as you have helped many others in the matter of housing.
I wish to sell this [house/property] quickly, easily, and profitably
and I implore you to grant my wish by bringing me a good buyer,
one who is eager, compliant, and honest,
and by letting nothing impede the rapid conclusion of the sale.
Dear Saint Joseph,
I know you would do this for me
out of the goodness of your heart and in your own good time,
but my need is very great now and so I must make you hurry
on my behalf.
Saint Joseph, I am going to place you
in a difficult position with your head in darkness
and you will suffer as our Lord suffered,
until this [house/property] is sold.
Then, Saint Joseph,
i swear before the cross and God Almighty,
that i will redeem you
and you will receive my gratitude
and a place of honour in my home.
