Brief History of Saint Expeditus

His name comes from the Latin adjective expeditus which means to be free from all encumbrance and ready to act. In ancient Rome, when the soldiers marched without carrying elements other than their weapons, it was said that

they did it on an expedition or in the expedition. Expeditus was included in martyrologies in Italy before 1781.

The images of Saint Expeditus present him dressed as a Roman soldier with a short tunic and cloak. In one hand he

holds a palm leaf symbolizing martyrdom and in the other a cross with the word Hodie which means “today” in Latin. He steps with his left foot on a crow that shouts “cras” (which means “tomorrow” in Latin).

The story goes that the day Expeditus decided to convert to Christianity, the Spirit of evil appeared taking the form of

a raven shouting in Latin “Cras, cras, cras!” (Tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow), to prolong his

indecision and avoid his conversion. To which he responded energetically by stomping the crow with his foot,

yelling, “Hodie, hodie, hodie!” (Today, Today, Today). For this reason, he is recognized as the patron of urgent causes

For Difficult and Impossible Causes

Help me to overcome these difficult hours, and protect me from all those who may harm me.
