Unique vintage medal honoring St. Christopher.
Legend has it that St. Christopher made his living by carrying people across a river. One day, a child asked to be carried across. When St. Christopher put the child on his shoulders he found the child was unbelievably heavy. The child, was Christ carrying the weight of the whole world. Christopher means Christ-bearer.
St. Christopher is the patron of travelers. His feast day is celebrated on July 25.
