14KT Gold St Christopher Saint Medal 3/4" Boxed Travel Protection Gift
14KT Gold St Christopher Saint Medal
Despite the fact that little is known about the life of St. Christopher, he has endured as one of the most popular saints. Bookbinders, Gardeners, Transportation Workers and Mariners have all chosen St. Christopher as their Patron Saint, but he is probably best known as the Patron Saint of Travellers.
The legend says he was a man of extraordinary size and strength. St. Christopher decided to please God by helping people across a dangerous river. On one of his journeys across the river, he was carrying a child who seemed to grow heavier and heavier as he progressed. The child told St. Christopher that he was Christ and that he grew heavier because he was carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders. Because of his dedication to guiding people on their voyage across the river, St. Christopher is now asked to protect people on long journeys and during travel.
Though there has been some confusion in recent years, St. Christopher remains a saint. During the 1960's the Church revised the universal calendar of celebrations that are observed throughout the church worldwide. In this revision, some Saints (such as Christopher) were removed from the universal calendar. Only a small percentage of canonized or recognized saints are listed on the universal calendar, though they are still accepted saints.
