St. Christopher was a Martyr in Licia under Decius around 250. He was a Giant man who lived in the woods. One day a little boy approached him and asked him to carry him across the river. As he crossed the river with the child, he became heavier and heavier until he St Christopher could barely hold him anymore. Once across the river, the child revealed himself as Jesus Christ and the weight he was feeling was the weight of the world.
