Novena to Saint Expeditus

This nine-day course of e-mails is designed to aid Catholics in praying the Novena to Saint Expeditus. According to legend, Saint Expeditus was a Roman centurion in Armenia who was martyred on April 19, 303, for converting to Christianity. When Expeditus decided to convert, the Devil took the form of a raven and tried to convince him to hold off until the next day. Saint Expeditus declared, "I'll be a Christian today!" and stomped on the raven. For that reason, he is the patron saint of (among others) procrastinators.

In this novena, we ask Saint Expeditus to intercede for us for all the graces that we need in our life.

Simply sign up on the day that you wish to begin praying the novena. You will receive an e-mail with the first day's prayers shortly after you sign up.
