St Christopher - Patron Saint of Travellers
There is a story behind this legend that St Christopher was helping travellers to cross a river and had to carry a child across. As he was carrying the child, the child seemed extremely heavy. When they reached the other side of the river the child revealed himself to be the manifestation of the infant christ. The reason that he had been so heavy was that he himself was carrying the whole weight of the world.
Because of this story St Christopher is known as the Patron Saint of Travellers, his prayer and assistance is usually given to those undergoing long or dangerous journeys.
