Today is the Feast Day of St. Expedite. He is one of the saints I work with on a regular basis as he is the saint of urgent matters (particularly financial), emergencies, speedy solutions, and successful lawsuits as well as students, people taking exams, computer programmers (and hackers), sailors, navigators, and merchants.
St. Expedite despises delay (he must hate Mercury Retrograde) and he is the saint to turn to when you need something done quickly. The word “expedite” refers to a type of Roman foot soldier who carries no baggage so therefore were fast or expeditious. St. Expedite is quick to act so if you invoke him for help you should see results relatively shortly — or not at all.
St. Expedite’s color is red or green. I have used both color candles for him. One popular ritual is to light 9 green candles in front of his image for 9 consecutive days. Ask him for what you need but remember it has to be something you NEED, not want. If you need financial help, place a coin on the altar but remove it after your prayer and tell him he won’t get it back until your money situation improves. Place flowers on the altar (red carnations are his favorite) and when he comes through for you, place a slice of pound cake on the altar. He also likes rum too!
St. Expedite is fair but if you don’t reward him, he will get angry. He has a reputation for being unscrupulous. Although removed from the official calendar of Roman Catholic saints, he is quite popular and revered worldwide. There are chapels dedicated to him in New Orleans and in San Juan, Argentina. I’ll be lighting my green candles later tonite!
