This is the story of St. Expedite

Patron of Procrastinators, Invoked for Financial Gain and for Help During Emergencies

Feast Day: April 19


Expedite’s story took place long ago. Whether it is a true story, is, well, another story. Although very little is known about this Saint it is said he attained notoriety when his cadaver was mailed to a convent. Written on top of his coffin was the word “Spedito.” So, the Nuns at the convent trying to figure out what he was all about, figured all things happen for a reason and came up with one of their own. They declared Spedito to be Saint Expedite. Some writers on the Internet have stated that Saint Expedite will expedite or speed up the arrival of money to your bank account! In keeping with the story of the Nuns, we suggest you wear Saint Expedite to guard against the arrival of corpses at your doorstep and for protection during emergencies! Or, if you believe what they say on the Internet, for money to come to you! © 2001
