8.25'' Sleeping St. Joseph Statue
This popular statue originates from Pope Francis' devotion to St. Joseph. Pope Francis has a statue of St. Joseph sleeping in his room. In 2015, Pope Francis said:
"I have great love for Saint Joseph, because he is a man of silence and strength. On my table I have an image of Saint Joseph sleeping. Even when he is asleep, he is taking care of the Church! Joseph's rest revealed God's will to him. In this moment of rest in the Lord, as we pause from our many daily obligations and activities, God is also speaking to us. But like Saint Joseph, once we have heard God's voice, we must rise from our slumber; we must get up and act."
Pope Francis advised people to leave a "note" under the image of the saint for help whenever they have a problem.
