Free Candle Spells | St. Expedite Feast Day – April 19th

Free Candle Spells | St. Expedite Feast Day – April 19th Saint Expedite, beloved of many residents of New Orleans and other places, is the patron saint of people who have faith in his rapid solutions to their problems, who want immediate financial success and those who want the delays and procrastination of situations to cease so that forward movement to an end can be seen. Some petition him to aid and assist in overcoming bad habits long needed of change. His feast day is April 19th and many set up altars, burning candles and giving offerings in his honor. His day is Wednesday. Saint Expedite is pictured as a young brown haired Roman soldier draped in a red cape, holding a palm frond in one hand and an upright cross with the words “HODIE” (“today” in Old Latin) on it. Under his right foot is a black crow, holding a ribbon in his mouth with the word “CRAS” (“tomorrow” in Old Latin) written across it. The message of the image is traditionally held as that you need to stamp out putting off for tomorrow what can be done today. St. Expedite is popular in Italy, Spain. Portugal and Latin America, as well as New Orleans, LA, where a statue of Expedite is stationed in the Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe on Rampart Street (pictured above). Legend has it that when the construction of the Church had finished, the priests sent an order for statuary to place in the Church. One crate arrived with the words “EXPEDITO” (meaning to rush, hurry or “expedite”). The priests thought that the word “EXPEDITO” was the name of this statue was Expedite; hence the legend was born. There are statues of St. Expedite worldwide, thus creating more of a mystery on who this Saint really is! Altars honoring Saint Expedite are filled with flowers and red candles, to match his red cloak, but also red is a magical candle color to symbolize energy, “heat” and power. If you choose to work with Expedite, light a red candle and place it center back on the table, with his statue or image to the right hand corner and the glass of water to the left like this:      Red Candle                 Glass of water                                                       Statue or Framed image of Expedite   If using a prayer card taped to the candle, set the candle to the right side and the water glass to the left side like this:  Glass of water                      Candle with image If and when St. Expedite grants your wishes and answers your prayers, you need to “pay” him. I say “if” he answers your prayers as sometimes he will not “work” with you for your immediate success. Do not take this as an insult; it is simply he is not the one you need to be petitioning for your situation. However, if he does bring you the the blessings you request, it is tradition to give him the gift of flowers, slices of pound cake (some say Sara Lee frozen pound cake that has been thawed) and some say a glass of red wine. It is crucial to make this offering to him after his work is done, as to not do so will incur his wrath and he will take back all that he has given you. Some go so far as to publish in the local newspaper his wondrous works in honor, just like many do so as customary...

Free Candle Spells | St. Expedite Candle/Offering for Blessings Received

Free Candle Spells | St. Expedite Candle/Offering for Blessings Received   Many people petition the well loved St. Expedite, also known as San Expedito, for when they need quick resolution to a problem, “Fast Luck”, or ‘things in a hurry’. I have written a few blogs here on Free Candle Spells regarding different ways to petition him. There is a belief that when he gives you what you want, you need to “pay” him with pound cake and red wine. Let me share my latest experience with you about my petitioning Saint Expedite. Last week, a new family-themed restaurant was being built in our area and there was a call for applicants. Three of my immediate relatives were interested in working at this new place. Two of them are currently employed, one was not. They chose to go together and wait in the hot sun in very long lines outside to fill out applications and hopefully obtain an interview. The day this was to happen was a Thursday. On Wednesday, I wrote a simple petition on a notepad paper, asking Saint Expedite to give my three relatives (I listed each of their names) a job with this corporation. I placed the petition on a small glass plate, cleansed and anointed a candle with St. Expedite Anointing Oil, and lit the candle in front of my statue. On Thursday, one of the three went on to the first of two interviews, with a “call back” on the next day, Friday. They went to it and was told that they would contact them after they did a background check. That told me right there that if they were going to pay for a background check, he was in the running. The candle burned through the weekend, ending on Monday sometime. Mid-day Monday, the relative received a call back that he had been accepted for employment. I left the candle alone until I went to the store. I bought his obligatory Sara Lee pound cake and gave it to him with a nice glass of red merlot wine. I also wrote “Thank You” in red ink across my petition and lit a red candle. Here is the photo for you to see how to “pay him what he wants” when you receive a blessing from Saint Expedite: Many thanks Saint Expedee!...
