St Christopher pendant – Solid sterling silver pendant on sterling silver curb chain.
The popular and best known tale of Saint Christopher, is as the patron saint of travellers. According to these stories, Christopher’s original name was Offero and was born in Canaan. He was a tall and very strong man who wandered the world in search of adventure. Eventually he sought out a Christian hermit who instructed him to spend his life in the service of Christ by helping others. According to legend Offero became a porter and guide, helping people to cross a swift and dangerous stream near to the hermit’s dwelling place. One day he carried a small child across the stream. The child grew heavier as he crossed the torrent and when they arrived on the other side, the child revealed himself as Christ, and explained he was so heavy because he bore the weight of the world. Christ then baptized Offero with water from the stream and Offero took the new name Christopher which means Christ-bearer. Christopher’s service at the stream led to his patronage of all things related to travel and travellers.
