|Patron Saint of Travelers
Feastday: July 25th
Although Christopher was never mentioned in the Bible, he takes a prominent place among the Saints. His cult is mainly based on legend and confined to local calenders. His fame derives from the pious legend of him being a "Christ-bearer". Legends tell of him living near a dangerous stream and carrying others safely across, when one day he offered a small child to help it across. Almost too heavy for him to bare, the child is revealed to be Jesus, who bore the weight of the world`s sins on his shoulders.
His self-less service to travelers at the stream led to his patronage of things related to travel and travelers.
