Christopher, honored as a Saint in Catholic traditions, is known as the patron saint of travelers. According to the stories about Saint Christopher, when he sought to serve the greatest king in the land, his journey eventually led him to follow Christ. When he learned he could serve Christ by prayer and fasting, he refused, believing he was unable to fast. Instead, he served Him by leading others across a dangerous river. One day a small child came to cross the river, and the weight was almost too much to bear. He later believed that child was Jesus, coming to him in the form of a child. Today, his legacy and the stories about him are used to provide confidence that Jesus can still provide safe travel. This pocket token is made to remind drivers to trust in God's provisions, even for the roadway. The medal is printed with a silver-tone design of Saint Christopher carrying a child on his back, and is packaged with a gift card that reads:
St. Christopher Pocket Medal
The Motorist's Prayer
Grant me, O Lord, a steady hand and
watchful eye, that no one shall be hurt
as I pass by. Thou gavest life, I pray
no act of mine may take away or mar
that gift of Thine. Shelter those, dear
Lord, who bear my company, from
the evils of fire and all calamity. Teach
me to use my car for others need; nor
miss through love of undue speed. The
beauty of the world; that thus I may
with joy and courtesy go on my way.
St. Christopher, holy patron of
travelers, protect me and lead me
safely to my destiny.
Give this token to new drivers, and drivers who are undertaking new challenges. If Jesus was with Saint Christopher in his journeys, leading others to safety back then, then surely He can guide you safely through the new challenges, even today.
