Very often in RootWork-Conjure, a Worker needs something to happen in a hurry! This is not always the case of the Worker waiting until the last minute but sometimes life just kicks you in the arse and say, "Git er done or else!" Other times as a professional Worker (like myself) you'll get clients coming to you to make stuff happen like yesterday. Very often my clients will wait until the last possible moment and then expect a Working to perform miracles.
Some time ago, I was complaining about this to a fellow Worker and he told me that St. Expedite is one who most folks pray too when the chips are down. While not a believer in the christian myths myself, I still find success hard to ignore regardless of where it comes from. Makes no difference if the success is from a Pagan God, African Orisha, Haitian LWA or a Catholic Saint. When you need help and there's a way everyone's using to get it, what does it matter WHERE it comes from as long as it works?
St. Expedite is not associated with any other Spirit or Saint. The legend goes that back in 1798, a group of nuns from Paris received a crate with the words "spedito" stamped on the side, meaning rush with haste. At that time, when statues and relics of saints were shipped, the name of the saint would be written on the side of the crate, thus St. Joseph would have "Joseph" & St. Francis would naturally have "Francis" on the side and so on. When the nuns opened the crate they found the beautiful statue of a saint. There was no other paperwork or anything else about him included, not even where the package originated from. Only the word "spedito" on the side. Taking this as a Divine Sign, the nuns quickly installed the statue and named him, "St. Expedito", or St. Expedite.
St. Expedite is prayed to when your prayers need to be "rushed" or sent "with haste" to God. He's also called upon for:
- settling disputes
- cursing your enemy
- in all cases when things need to change quickly

[Insert Your Request] Expedite this, what I ask of you. Expedite now, this is what I want of you, this very second.
Please don't waste another day. Please give me what I ask for. I know your power, I know you because of your work. I know you can do it. If you do this for me, I'll spread your name with love and honor. Expedite my prayer with speed, love, honor and goodness. Glory to you St. Expedite!"
