The Story of St. Christopher
The well-known and revered Saint Christopher, known as the patron saint of all travelers, was a martyr who lived in the Roman Empire.
According to the legend, he was crossing a dangerous river when a child asked him to be carried across. Although St. Christopher was a man of great physical stature and strength, he felt the child was extremely heavy when he lifted it on his shoulders.
When they arrived at the opposite shore safely, the child identified himself as Christ and was told that he just carried the weight of the world and the One who created it.
Additionally, other legends stated that St. Christopher traveled after that incident and evangelized thousands of people.
Unfortunately, he was detained and ordered to sacrifice to an emperor but refused even being tempted with women and money. He was tried to be assassinated multiple times and failed but eventually, he was arrested and beheaded.
His story has been passed down from generation to generation despite not having certainty that it all happened. There was even no specific date of his beatification or canonization.
Many details of St. Christopher’s life have been lost, but he still became one of the most popular heroes of faith.
His name and images are commonly worn as medals and pendants, especially by travelers like explorers, mariners, drivers, and surfers not only to show devotion but to request safety and protection from sudden death. Many homes, bridges, and churches also placed images and statues of him, so he could be easily seen.
