The history behind the Saint Christopher Necklace

The legend of Saint Christopher dates back to 9th century with stories being told of this ‘mammoth’ man in Greece and then in France.

St Christopher was, according to legend, 7.5 feet tall, a huge man in search of  ‘The greatest king”.  After serving the King Of Canaan he went on to serve (temporarily) the devil.  On finding that the devil feared Christ he went in search of the Christ figure.  On his travels he met a hermit who suggested that he helped peopled cross a treacherous river in order to serve Christ.  On one particular trip the river was swollen and hazardous and he carried a small child.  This child was the young Christ.  “You have put me in great danger.  The whole world could have been as heavy on my shoulders as you were” said Christopher who was unaware of the child’s name.  The child replied  “You had on your shoulders not only the whole world but Him who made it. I am Christ your king”.

 

Saint Christopher is now the Patron Saint of Travel and is a popular gift for all.  I like to give a Saint Christopher medal when a child ‘flees’ the nest.
