Saint Expedite is probably a Saint most of you have heard of or maybe even seen his little stamp card(You know the catholic ones)..Well here is a post explaining who exactly is Saint Expedite, How we can work with him, and pretty much all you got to know of this very special Saint.
To start of, Saint Expedite is the patron saint for those who need a speedy solution to their problems. Whether it be for money, love, healing, or to put an end to a court case. His feast day is April 19.
Saint Expedite is depicted as a Roman soldier holding a cross marked HODIE(“today”) and a his foot on top of a crow marked CRAS(“tomorrow” in Latin). I don’t you need further explanation to what this means, He destroys a vague tomorrow in favor of today. Meaning he does things today and doesn’t leave them for tomorrow. He is definitely a speedy worker.
Here is his image:
Now please my sweethearts, to those of our very “special” people. Don’t petition to win the lottery and expect for it to happen. He is usually petitioned when one is in need of quick money, for example to pay the rent.
How is he petitioned?
Usually he is called on and petitioned on a Wednesday, lighting a red candle. Here is a good petition:
Pray to Saint Expedite
Noble Roman youth, martyr,
You who quickly brings things to pass,
You who never delays, I come to you in need:
____________ (Clearly express what you want and ask him to
find a way to get it to you.)
Do this for me, Saint Expedite, and when it is accomplished,
I will as rapidly reply with an offering to you.
(State your vow or promise)
Be quick, Saint Expedite!
Grant my wish before your candle burns out, and I will glorify your name.
Of course there are many more, here are prayers to Saint Expedite for specific cases: http://saintexpedite.org/prayers.html
Now when he has solved your problem, then you must repay him. How do you do this? Quite simple: A glass of water, a red Saint Expedite candle, Fresh flowers, and a slice of pound cake.
Saint Expedite is quick to work, meaning you should be ready to pay him back at the same speed. Just keep in mind that you MUST PAY HIM..If you do not pay him, the results will not be so good.
Well if you have any specific questions about this glorious saint, feel free to send an ask!
GLORY TO YOU, SAINT EXPEDITE!
I’ve actually petitioned him in the past myself, with great success. I’ve only done so when in real need. Not just because I’d like something material or trivial.
