St. Christopher Carrying Jesus Across the
A large man from Palestine, he worked for
a while helping travelers ford a raging river, as a human ferry. One
day a small child asked for this service. Perched on Christopher's
shoulder, the child grew heavier and heavier as they crossed the
stream. Reaching the other shore, Christopher asked him "Who are
you, that you placed me in such peril. It seems I was carrying the
whole world on my shoulders". The child replied "You not only
carried the world, but him who made it. I am Jesus Christ the King".
