Saint Expeditus

What a lazy vacation I've been having. I really need to go work in my office today and get it cleaned up, do laundry and bills, and get some personal correspondence done. Funny that on Monday night I got a medal of St. Expeditus, the 'fake' saint supposedly guarding against procrastination and encouraging decisiveness. There are those in the Catholic Church who believe there never really was any such saint, that the box containing the remains of Expeditus or his likeness were simply marked by the phrase "spedito" and it was mistaken as a saint name.

I got fascinated by St. Expeditus when I saw the statue at Our Lady of Guadalupe chapel in New Orleans and heard the same story slightly modified for that parish. St. Expeditus became something of a patron saint of voodoo because of it, and now he's supposedly the patron saint of computer geeks, who are always seeking 'instant gratification' via the internet.

Anyway, I lost track of St. Expeditus over the years, and now I have his medal -- perfect for me, since my worst flaw is procrastination.

Speaking of Monday night, Charlie and I went to the Festival of Lights at Portland's sanctuary, The Grotto, and heard the boys I want to use at the Coronation sing. We had never gone to the event, and it was really quite nice. The weather held, and the lights were beautiful.

I've fallen behind on my flist, and there's a new challenge at ka100 that I don't know if I'll do. (I didn't do the last one.)

At least I've been working out. Still need to go find that new treadmill, though!
