St. Christopher Comments

Before the 1969 reform of the Roman calendar, Christopher was listed as a martyr who died under Decius. Nothing else is known about him. There are several legends about him including the one in which he was crossing a river when a child asked to be carried across. When Christopher put the child on his shoulders he found the child was unbelievably heavy. The child, according to the legend, was Christ carrying the weight of the whole world. This ...

    Some of the most ancient saints were taken off of the liturgical calendar and this is a shame. Sometimes that mistake has been corrected as in the case of Saint Catherine of Alexandria.
    Saint George was never taken off because he is the patron saint of England. One doesn't want to upset the English!!!!!

    I've been told my doctors that I'm able to have children in complete health. A place found for me to stay and find an employ. I will choose invitro after I've settled into a decent place. I was told I could have children. I'm an orphan myself. I pray for twin baby girls. I don't want anyone to be alone. My family I pray for. My age is close. I don't know what it is. I remember The Bible and the woman at age 50 approaching Mary and telling her of her pregnancy. God is with me! I'm estatic at times. I will be able to tell Mary the happy news! A place to stay has been found and I'm restored to my full self as a mortal being. I believe St. Christopher has been looking at me along time, and this is the reason why. God bless our pious Heterosexuality. O'lord amen.

    Thank you for your time,

    My 16 year old baseball player (son) has been involved in 2 traffic accidents in the past 90 days, one of which SHOULD have been fatal. He walked away COMPLETELY unhurt from both accidents. He has also been hurt on the baseball field while playing. Two different doctors have said that his injuries should have been much worse based on what happened, and that he appeared to have healed much, much faster than anyone could expect.
    I am convinced that the St Christopher medallion he wears around his neck, and the fact that I pray for his safety every time he leaves the house or steps on the baseball field has kept him safe thus far.

    St. Christopher is particularly dear to me not just because I was raised and still am Catholic, but because he was my first visual piece of evidence attesting to my Papa's profound life- long spirituality. My Mama and I gave Papa a 50cent piece sized 14kt gold St. Christopher's medallion with, "Merry Christmas, with Love, Pepper and Carrie, 1974" engraved on the back. I had just turned 4yrs. old on the 21st of December and from that moment until he passed away, May 1987 (I was 16yrs. old) that medallion never left his person; even when he had to undergo various different surgeries over the years and he had to remove it from around his neck he asked the surgical nurses if he could have the chain and medallion pinned to his hospital gown through the surgery. Without fail, the nurses would always oblige and he would send them flowers thanking them, upon his release from the hospital. My Papa, Raymond Paul Hjorth, as you can tell from the last name, came from a long line of seafaring people and Viking heritage being Danish and Catholic, so St. Christopher resonated with him early in life. He always told me that St. Christopher was the one you would look to when going to sea, as a soldier, as a traveler, and as a protector of children. My Papa was a seafarer, was a U.S. Marine, and was always there to not only protect me but all of my friends and any other children in need of protection. To me he embodied the qualities of the saint he adored his entire life. He would say that it was because of his reverence to St. Christopher that he was able to do those things and protecting children is a given, couldn't imagine doing anything less. For love and the good even the heaviest burden is worth bearing; I saw this through my Papa. And when he died, my Mama gave me his St. Christopher's Medallion, the very object that gave me a tangible connection to my Papa's Catholic Faith. Peace and Love be with you all.

    i stumbled across a metal of saint Christopher, had no idea the meaning until today, this made me think that it was no accident that i found this metal when i did, with everything that has happened or is happening in my life now, there has been some unexpected protection lately.

    I know several people who had a St. Christopher medal or statue in their car. They were in severe car accidents, miraculously survived with minor injuries, and truly believed that St. Christopher, with God's blessing, saved their lives. Changes made to traditions in the Catholic Church by popes....what else is new? All I know is, the way people drive nowadays, we need all the help we can get! St. Christopher, a rosary, etc., remain in my car.......

    saints are holy figures who serve as prayer helpers and messengers to God. They too have their own line of especiality ie: Saint Perigrine for cancer patients, Saint Jude for the hopeless, Saint Rita de Casia for the impossible, etc., that beleivers seek and elect their own saint to represent their needs. Although we can pray directly to God, lots of beleivers pray to and uses their choosen saints asking them to intercede and help beg for God mercy for a quick answered prayer. My faith and prayers for a good and safety travel will always be to God through Saint Christopher.
