Sri Lanka: St Expedit

Where do saints come from? On reading Dalrymple's work, One One Things has a post on St Expedit who got his name because “Unfortunately the label with the name of the Saint in question had been discarded somewhere along the way and all that remained was a stamp with the Italian word “Spedito”, meaning expedited.”
