St. Expedite is the patron saint of procrastination His feast day is April 19. I didn’t get around to mentioning it yesterday. At least now I didn’t put it off until tomorrow.
There is not much that is “known” about St. Expedite, although there are a lot of great stories about him. Believe any of them that you like. I like the one about when he had decided to become a Christian, the devil appeared in the form of a crow, and didn’t argue with him about his decision, but just suggested to him that he could convert tomorrow. Expedite stomped on the bird and said, “I’ll be a Christian today!”
I often hear myself saying to myself, “I really want/need to … I am going to start tomorrow.”
Got an emergency? Need a quick solution to a problem? Want relief from the habit of procrastination? Pray to St. Expedite.
