ST. CHRISTOPHER – Patron of Travelers/Motorists
Christopher was a well-built man, who one day, came upon a hermit who guided travellers to safe points to cross a dangerous river. The hermit taught him the truth of God. Christopher took the place of the hermit but instead of guiding travellers to safe places, he would carry them across the river. He once carried a small child who later revealed himself as Christ and baptized Christopher.
