St. Christopher is well known as the patron saint of travelers. This is due in large part to a medieval legend in which the saint carries the Christ Child over a river. If he was given the care of the baby Jesus during his travels, wouldn’t he be a perfect patron for our own adventures?
Here is a popular prayer to St. Christopher that invokes his intercession during our travels. Whether you are traveling on your own or with your family, pray to God through the intercession of St. Christopher. Many have attributed their safety to this fascinating saint and are at peace when they know he is with them.
Dear Saint Christopher,protect me todayin all my travelsalong the road’s way.Give your warning signif danger is nearso that I may stopwhile the path is clear.Be at my windowand direct me throughwhen the vision blursFrom out of the blue.Carry me safelyto my destined place,as you carried Christin your close embrace. Amen.
