Traditional Catholic chaplet to Saint Christopher, the patron saint of travelers, journeys, sailors, boatmen and truck drivers.

Offero (as he was then called) was a strongly-built holy man who served by carrying people across a dangerous river. One day he carried a small child across; the child's weight nearly crushed him. When they arrived on the other side, the child revealed himself as Christ, and he was so heavy because he bore the weight of the world on himself. He then baptized Offero with water from the stream. Offero became known as Christopher which means 'Christ Bearer". His service at the stream led to his patronage of things related to travel and travelers, people who transport things, etc. One of the Fourteen Holy Helpers.

This chaplet to St Christopher is in the traditional layout of 3 groups of 3 beads - 8mm facetted olive green Czech crystal, each wire wrapped for strength. The front has two medals - a St Christopher medal with the words "pray for us" on the back and a Catholic medal with a 5-way cross on the front and the words: "I am a Catholic, In the case of serious accident please call a priest." There is an angel charm and a tiny very detailed crucifix at the center connector.

Length: 9.1" (23cm) overall
Medals: 1.0" (2.5cm)

Perfect for regular use, it is also a great gift for someone traveling or who is on the road a lot. Comes attractively wrapped with a pamphlet about the chaplet.
