Saint Expedite is an interesting enigma amongst the catholic saints in that is impossible to actually prove that Saint Expedite existed at all. His existence can only be found in the martyrologies. His appearance is that of a Roman Centurion bearing a cross in his right hand with the word Hodie engraved on it, and crushing a crow beneath his foot cawing out the word cras. Hodie translates to Today, and cras translates to tomorrow. So it is seen that St. Expedite is the patron saint of speedy resolutions. Usually called upon to help get money or a job quickly. Although he can be used to help get a quick resolution to other problems.

When working with the saint it is important to remember to give him a time limit to produce results. When setting up the altar for Saint Expedite it is important to remember his colors, candles, and water.

His color candles are traditionally Red and Yellow. However, if you are asking him for money you can use a green candle. as far as a traditional altar set up the candle, glass of water, saint image or statue should be arranged in a triangle.

There are other ways to set up an altar to Saint Expedite, but the one mentioned here is the simplest way to do so. Prior to lighting the candle it is common to anoint the candle with Fast Luck Oil.

 

Recipe for Fast Luck:

Oil of Cinnamon

Oil of Vanilla

Wintergreen

Alkanet chips to make the oil red.

As a folk saint there are traditional prayers, but it is more common to pray to the saint in your own words.

It is important to remember the items that you pay Saint Expedite with. His favorite flowers are colored Red (roses work well), and Pound Cake. When making your requests it is always important to remember to make mention of the form of payment you will be giving him. Also, HIGHLY (and I can't stress it enough) important if he comes through for you you must pay him for his work or else what he brought you can be taken away. If it's not taken away, he usually will not work with you again.

 

a sample prayer asking for his aid:

 

Saint Expedite I call you out of your martyrdom to aid me in __________. I pray that you will aid me now as in the past (Or aid me now as you have aided others in the past). It is very important that I receive __________ in __________number of days. Oh Saint Expedite out of your martyrdom aid me, and you will be handsomely paid with roses and pound cake.

It has only become known in the last 7 or so years (according to Catherine Yronwode) to turn the saint upside down in order to procure faster results. However, this is actually seen as very disrespectful to the spirit.

In my own workings with Saint Expedite he has worked most every time. It is important to remember that sometimes the spirits know better than you or I, and sometimes the results you want will not come to fruition. However, if you employ Saint Expedite and things do not work out the way you hoped you can always go through other measures.

Lovely altar! and of course Saint Expedite does not receive the cake or flowers until he delivers.

 

 

Seems pretty common sense, I've seen a lot of people putting the pound cake on right away though. Guess it all depends on how you neotiate with him.

It's always been my understanding that if you pay him first he won't work for you. But I suppose if he works with someone in that way then more power to them.

Another thing I've found handy with St. Expedite that I did intuitively, didn't read it anywhere, is save the flower petals from the flowers I give to him (I use red carnations) and dry them and add them to an incense to use the next time I call him. Reminds him of his previous payment for working with me.

Thanks for showing this one. I find it interesting that the image of St. Expedite takes form of a Roman Centurian.

 

Did the martyrologies say anything about when he lived (if he did existed) ? The Roman Empire for the west ended in the 5th century, but the Eastern part of the empire lasted a lot longer.

Thanks Raven

 

303 AD would be still decades before the Roman empire divided into the West and East (later known as the Byzantine empire).

 

St. Expedite would have died at the time the Roman Empire was under the Emperors - Diocletian (284-305 AD) and Maximian (286-310 AD).

The "facts" about St. Expedite have always been shaky. Honestly I couldn't care less, what matters to me is that he comes when I call him and does his work so amazingly well. He's amazing!

I agree aloe. Even if he is essentially a Tulpa or an actual person that died in 303 AD makes no difference to me. He works most every single time I need him.

When I was reading up on St. Expedite (Expeditus) on Wikipedia, they mentioned

 

"In Haitian Vodou the image of St Expedite is used to represent Baron Lakwa a spirit associated with death, cemeteries, children and sex. In New Orleans Voodoo the saint often represents Baron Samedi, the spirit of death.

 

The saint is also often invoked in the African-American magical tradition of Hoodoo, where it is customary to make an offering to him of a glass of water, a bunch of flowers and a pound cake. He is believed to grant any request within his power on the provision that the petitioner recommends his invocation to others, thereby spreading his cult. In this tradition his image is used in gambling charms and rituals believed to bring down curses on others.

 

So my question is are you using (don't that word too) St Expedite as St Expedite or as Baron Lakwa or Baron Samedi?

I work with him as St. Expedite. When I give offerings to Baron Samedi its in the form of Baron Samedi. A man with a painted skull on his face, black top hat, cigar, etc.
