Why St Christopher? Read on...
St. Christopher was supposedly born to a heathen king from the land of Canaan and resolved to serve only the strongest and bravest people. He was said to be a man of extraordinary size and strength, bearing height of up to 7 ½ to 12 feet tall!
On St Christopher's journey, he one day met a hermit who told St. Christopher that because of his great size he could please God by carrying people across a dangerous river. St. Christopher did so, in service to God. One day, he carried a child across the river and noticed that the child got heavier and heavier. The child told him that he was carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders and the one who created the world. The child announced himself to St. Christopher as Christ, his king. That is how St. Christopher became the Patron Saint of travellers.
Saint Christopher today is known as the patron saint of travellers, drivers, sailors, storm, bachelors, gardeners, bubonic plague and toothache.
