Not much info is available on St. Expedite
The most popular and accepted one is about him being a Roman soldier back in the days of the Christian persecution.
During his service, he witnessed the martyrdom of several Christians at the hands of their persecutors, and was so taken by their humility, faith, and their requests that their persecutors be forgiven even as their persecutors tortured and killed them, that he chose to convert to Christianity – a choice that caused him to be imprisoned and ultimately killed for his beliefs.
He is generally depicted as a Roman soldier stepping on a raven who is saying “Cras” (tomorrow) while holding a cross that says “Hodie” (today.)
This comes from before St Expedite was martyred, Satan came to him in the form of a raven saying “Convert tomorrow, convert tomorrow,” and St Expedite refused, insisting he be baptized a Christian that very same day and crushed the raven under his feet. The day after, he was martyred for his Christian faith.
