The Very little is known about probably the most popular saint. Christopher was a Third century martyr in the persecutions of Decius.
Legend has it that his fame was derived from the him being a "Christ-bearer", the meaning of the name Christopher. He was a powerfully built man who wandered the world in search of novelty and adventure. 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 he bore the weight of the world on himself. He then baptized Christopher with water from the stream. Christopher's service at the stream led to his patronage of things related to travel and travelers. One of the Fourteen Holy Helpers.
