The Patron Saint of In-a-Hurry

I had this post in draft form from last October. I still get a kick out of all the patron saints for different challenges and afflictions. For similar reasons, I enjoyed Justine Larbalestier's How to Ditch Your Fairy.


Bede sent me a link to a BoingBoing article about St. St. Expedite, an apocryphal figure who is the patron of people who need help in a hurry. I had only known him as the patron saint of postal workers from a medallion I received as a prize during a production of Late Nite Catechism.
