Apologies if there is already a thread on this topic, I did search but didn’t find anything.
I saw that TWF made a thread to thank Saint Apollonia and though it would be a good idea to make a broader thread to discuss saint work. This thread can be for asking questions, swapping stories, or even offering thanks to these wonderful saints who have blessed our lives.
Just a little background for those who are newer to Saints or Magic in general:
Saints are the elevated dead who, for whatever reason, have decided to stick around and aid the living. They come from a variety of religious backgrounds (not all are Catholic) and some are spirits that work with the “face” of a saint, meaning a certain spirit will answer and work under the saint’s name.
From my experience the Saints don’t really care what religion or path you identify as, if you are in need and ask respectfully they generally come through.
For example the beginning of 2012 saw my wife and myself in a new home but completely out of money. My new job had yet to pay me as I started work in the middle of a pay period, and I wouldn’t get paid for a week more. Rent was due in two days and things looked bleak.
We were getting a kick back in our Pell Grant and we were owed enough for two months rent. We had expected that money to come in in the next week as well.
Scared that my wife and I would be evicted from our appartment I turned to St. Expedite. He is essentially the patron saint of speedy cases, need something you are owed in a hurry? Call on Saint Expedite.
I made a makeshift altar with a candle and a picture of a the saint, and then started to talk to him. I told him that I was owed money from my Pell Grant and I needed now. I explained how dire my situation was. I told him that the money was rightfully mine, but since the government and my school were so slow with financial aid I usually got my left over Pell Grant Money late. I pled my case as best I could and then went to bed.
The next morning I woke up, logged into my bank account and found the money there. I was elated as I offered thanks to St. Expedite and left him a pound cake and glass of water as payment and thanks.
Since that time I have never had a Pell Grant clear so quickly and I am eternally grateful for St. Expedite.
