Saint Christopher was converted to the Catholic Faith in Antioch, where the Chair of Saint Peter was before Saint Peter went to Rome. Saint Christopher was baptized by a saint, Saint Babylas. He was put to death under the cruel Emperor Decius. Saint Christopher is one of the fourteen Holy Helpers. He was a strong and vigorous man. In his charity, he used to carry frail people and little ones across the river, which had no bridge. One day, he carried a child, and found that the child he was carrying was Christ Jesus Himself. And so his name, which means Christ bearer, beautifully blended that day with his work. Saint Christopher is the patron saint of all travelers.
