14k gold filled St. Christopher medal, on 14k gold filled chain
One of the 14 Auxiliary Saints, Saint Christopher is the patron saint of all travelers. The name Christopher means Christ bearer in Greek, or one who carries Christ. One of the most famous and treasured stories about St. Christopher is the story of the child he found and then carried across a mighty river. The child in the story is later revealed to be Christ which is why this figure is the patron saint of travelers. Many people choose to wear a St. Christopher necklace during traveling for added protection. The Saint Christopher medal can also be placed in cars, purses, or suitcases, for those looking for the sense of protection without wearing the accessory.
