I don't work with saints all that often but Expedite has been a great ally for me and my clients for sure. He is known as the unofficial patron saint of emergencies, dealers,examinees,schoolboys,sailors, navigators, shopkeepers, and anyone who needs a quick solution for their problem. This great saint has amassed a following from both Catholics and non-Catholics alike for one simple reason, he gets results. Petitioning Saint Expedite is quite simple, you will need:
- A Saint Expedite prayer card or printed out image of the saint.
- A Expedite class encased novena candle or a red candle
- A glass of water
- Fast Luck Oil or Powder (Optional)
name paper, and dress it and the candle with fast luck oil, or powder. I prefer a seven day candle for my petitions and I repeat my prayer each day as the candle burns. I have started using a plate and tracing forming a circle with a cross in the center using fast luck powder. I then set the name paper and fixed candle on the plate. As long as you have his image on hand, and offer a sincere prayer you have his attention and if your need be genuine he will offer assistance. There are many prayers offered to him, you can find plenty on Saintexpedite.org or just speak from the heart. Here is the prayer that I use the most:
For quick help...You recite your prayer until your request is granted. Once Saint Expedites work is done he expects to be "paid" just as fast. One of the main ways that he is thanked for his work is by making public announcements in his honor and letting others know of his great deeds. Hence why this particular post started out the way that it did. He is also offered a slice of pound cake (some say it has to be sara lee cake, but I don't think so), fresh flowers, and a glass of water. I always give him a slice of pound cake, a glass of fresh water, and a red rose as thanks. I use the glass from the candle as the vase for the rose and let the offerings sit on the altar for a week, That's pretty much it in a nutshell. May Saint Expedite be as good to you as he has to me.
Pray to Saint Expedite
Saint Expedite, you lay in rest.
I come to you and ask that this wish be granted.
____________ (Clearly express what you want, and ask him to
find a way to get it to you.)
Expedite now what I ask of you.
Expedite now what I want of you, this very second.
Don't waste another day.
Grant me what I ask for.
I know your power, I know you because of your work.
I know you can help me.
Do this for me and I will spread your name with love and honor
so that it will be invoked again and again.
Expedite this wish with speed, love, honor, and goodness.
Glory to you, Saint Expedite!
