Patronage Expeditious solutions to urgent causes, against procrastination

Saint Expeditus (d. 303), also known as Saint Expedite, was, according to Catholic Church tradition, a Roman centurion convert to Christianity who was martyred in Armenia Minor during the Diocletian Persecution of 303 A.D. He is the patron saint of expeditious solutions (including emergencies), this benefaction often being attributed by hagiographers to a popular misinterpretation of his name (which originally means unencumbered).
