I want to encourage today, devotion to a lesser known saint, but one whose patronage will be close, I think, to many Canberra traditionalist hearts, particularly today, namely St Expeditus.
St Expeditus' entry in the Roman Martyrology (on April 19) is brief, stating only that he was crowned a martyr at Melitine in Armenia on the same day as a number of others.
Little is known of the saint, and it is not clear whether Expeditus was his real name, or a descriptor (a Roman soldier travelling with only light equipment was called expeditus). However, he is generally portrayed as a soldier with a crow with the writing "cras" ("tomorrow") underfoot, and either a hand touching a clock (as above) or holding a cross with the word 'hodie' (today) on it.
For obvious reasons he is the patron saint of rapidity, against procrastination and related sins, and for an expeditious approach to things in general.
I'd be delighted to know if you particularly felt like offering a prayer to the saint today.
