Description

This art deco style medal features St Christopher carrying the Christ Child on his back. Jesus holds an orb that represents his power over the whole world and points the way for St Christopher.

St Christopher is still recognized as a saint in the Catholic Church; however, his feast day has been removed from the liturgical calendar. This has led some into believing that his sainthood was rescinded.

St Christopher was a third century martyr. Legend says that he was a powerfully built man who made his living by ferrying people across a river. One day he carried a small child across the stream; the child’s weight nearly crushed him. When they arrived on the other side, the child revealed himself as Christ, and he was so heavy because his shoulders bore the weight of the world. He then baptized Christopher with water from the stream. Christopher’s service at the stream led to his patronage of things related to travel, travelers, and lifeguards.

The medal was cast in sterling silver from an antique medal in the Rosa Mystica Collection so it shows all the beauty and history of the original piece. It comes with a matching holy card in an organza gift bag, ready for gift-giving, and was made in the USA
