It is said that Saint Expedite provides swift results in our time of need. Saint Expedite has been worked with by magical and spiritual practitioners around the world and is much beloved for the work he does on behalf of those who come to him for aid.
Though there is no verifiable evidence that he existed as a historical figure, Saint Expedite has a colorful history as a patron of fast luck, quick fixes, and putting an end to procrastination. There are various folk tales that speak if his origin which claim that his statue arrived in a crate to a convent or a church, which it was and where it was located changes depending upon who is telling the tale. When the crate arrived there was a statue of a roman soldier inside, and though there was no information about the statue inside, those receiving it noted the label on the side of the crate which said “Expedite” and determined that to be the name of this otherwise unknown Saint.
Saint Expedite has a mercurial nature and is often worked with on Wednesdays. His colors are yellow and red. Popular depictions of the Saint show him stamping upon a crow which exclaims “Cras” which is both Latin for tomorrow, and also mimics the caw of a crow in sound. Meanwhile Expedite is seen holding a cross aloft with the word “Hodie” (Today) written upon it. Originally this was seen as representing the directive to repent/convert today instead of waiting, however it is further seen as representative of Saint Expedite’s nature to get things done, and get them done now.
