St. Expedite Ritual Symbol Devotional Candle
St. Expedite could quite possibly be the most effective unofficial saint of urban legend ever to have been discovered. For a variety of reasons, the Roman Catholic Church will not officially recognize St. Expedite; but, at the same time, they won’t discount him either. That’s because he’s just too damned popular. And, according to his devotees, he’s just that damned good. But that’s okay, New Orleans Voudou has no problem embracing St. Expedite as one of her patron saints. And hoodoos, rootworkers, conjure doctors, spiritualists and sorcerers appreciate his worth, as well. No officialities are needed in these camps. Because when a saint works as well—and more importantly, as quickly—as St. Expedite works, he is more than welcome in the wide world of conjure.
Candles are commonly burned on altars to show special devotion to a specific saint, spirit, deity, ancestor or ancestors. This striking candle is created as a general devotional candle to St. Expedite. It bears an original prayer I wrote for him on the back as well his ritual symbol that was divinely inspired while writing the book, The Conjurer's Guide to St. Expedite. St. Expedite Sigil Fixed Conjure Candles are ritually prepared and "fixed" for you with special oils, herbs, and prayer.
Voodoo Mama's Conjure Candles will burn for approximately seven days or 120 hours. They can be reused once they have burned down as vases for holding flowers, turned into a container spell to keep on your altar or refilled with wax to burn again. They are simply too beautiful to throw away and the creative conjurer will find many possibilities for using the decorative glass container once the original wax has burned down. The exception to this is when the candle is burned for nefarious purposes. The remains should be thrown in a trash can away from your home or left at a crossroads with an offering.
