NOVENA TO
SAINT EXPEDITUS


[Whenever possible, recite this Novena before the Most Blessed Sacrament.]

Act of Contrition

My Lord Jesus Christ,
Father of endless charity
I am heartily sorry for all my sins.
Grant me therefore pardon of my sins
and the grace I ask of you
thru the merits of the sorrows of your loving Mother
and the virtues of Your martyr, St. Expeditus.

Concluding Prayer:

Oh St. Expeditus, my protector,
in you I place my hope
that my petitions may be granted
if they are for my own good.
Please ask our Lord,
through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin,
for the forgiveness of my sins,
and the grace to change my life,
particularly the grace...

(Mention the particular grace desired...)

and I promise to follow your examples
and will propagate this devotion to you.

Day 1

O Glorious Martyr, St Expeditus,
through the lively faith which was granted you by God,
I ask you to awaken the same faith in my heart,
that I may also believe wholeheartedly
that there is God,
but most particularly that I may be saved
from sinning against Him.

Pray 3 Our Father... in honor of the Most Holy Trinity.

Say the Concluding Prayer mentioned above.

Day 2

O Glorious Martyr, St. Expeditus,
through the enviable hope given you by God,
pray that those of little belief
may be penetrated by some rays of hope
so that they may also receive eternal things,
please pray that ardent hope in God
be also given me
and hold me steadfast in the midst of sufferings.

Pray 3 Our Father... in honor of the Most Holy Trinity.

Say the Concluding Prayer mentioned above.

Day 3

Oh Glorious Martyr, St. Expeditus,
through the endless love
which our Lord planted in your heart,
please remove from mine all shackles tied by worldliness,
that without them I may love only God in all eternity.

Amen.

Pray 3 Our Father... in honor of the Most Holy Trinity.

Say the Concluding Prayer mentioned above.

Day 4

Oh Glorious Martyr, St. Expeditus
who knew fully well the teaching of the Divine Teacher
to carry the cross and follow Him,
ask Him, for the Graces I need
that I may fight my own passions.

Pray 3 Our Father... in honor of the Most Holy Trinity.

Say the Concluding Prayer mentioned above.

Oh Glorious Martyr, St. Expeditus,
through the bountiful graces you received from Heaven,
that you may conserve all your virtues,
grant also that I may get rid of all the feelings
that block my way to heaven.

Pray 3 Our Father... in honor of the Most Holy Trinity.

Say the Concluding Prayer mentioned above.

Day 6

Oh Glorious Martyr, St. Expeditus,
through the sufferings and humiliations
which you received for the love of God,
grant me also this grace which is very pleasing to God,
and free me from angers and hardness of heart
which is the stumbling block of my soul.

Pray 3 Our Father... in honor of the Most Holy Trinity.

Say the Concluding Prayer mentioned above.

Day 7

Oh Glorious Martyr, St. Expeditus,
you know that prayer is the golden key
that will open the Kingdom of Heaven,
teach me to pray in a manner
which is desirable to Our Lord
and to His Heart,
that I may only live only for Him,
that I may die only for Him,
and that I may pray only to Him in all eternity.

Pray 3 Our Father... in honor of the Most Holy Trinity.

Say the Concluding Prayer mentioned above.

for the glory of God
and the good of my fellowmen.

Say the Concluding Prayer mentioned above.

Day 9

Oh Glorious Martyr, St. Expeditus,
who was so much loved by the Queen of Heaven
that you nothing was denied,
ask her, please, my advocate,
that through the sufferings of her Divine Son
and her own sorrows,
I may receive this day the grace I ask of you,
but above all the grace to die first
before I commit any mortal sin.

Pray 3 Our Father... in honor of the Most Holy Trinity.

Say the Concluding Prayer mentioned above.
