About Pope Francis and the Sleeping Joseph Statue:

While asleep, St. Joseph received messages from God, who warned him about the danger posed by King Herod and entrusted him with loving and protecting Mary and the Baby Jesus.

It was in a dream when Joseph accepted his role as putative father of Jesus and of all mankind, an archetypal figure of protector, defender, and consoler. Joseph is the attentive and tender guardian of the Family, a just man who accepts and guards the mysteries of God, as he willingly chose to accept and protect Mary, the woman chosen by God to be the Most Holy and Immaculate Mother of His only

An invitation to "sleep on it"...
This is why, Fr. Marcello Stanzione explains, the Pope has the habit of placing under the statue of the saint a list containing the problems, petitions, and prayers of the faithful. It's as if he were inviting Saint Joseph to "sleep on it," and perhaps to put a good word in before God to solve difficult situations and to help those in need, thus calling upon the saint's role as a father who is merciful and totally attentive to those he loves.
