Saint Christopher is one of the most recognized and venerated saints, although not much is known about his life. He is revered as one of the fourteen Holy Helpers (Saints who were invoked during the devastating Black Death period in Europe). Born to a disgraced king and his wife, Saint Christopher left his home and upon doing so, stumbled upon a hermit, who advised him to pledge his allegiance to God. Christopher promised to help those who needed help across a dangerous stream, and one day, he carried a child across the river who revealed himself as Christ. His medals are worn in recognition of him being the Patron Saint of Travelers and long journeys.
