The Traveler's Guardian (St. Christopher)

share on Facebook


Rev. Francis Benz.

Imprimatur. 16 page booklet.

Father Mell and his quartet of loyal altar boys take a small road trip to attend a big, important football game. Along the way Father Mell tells them the story of the life of St. Christopher. How he bound himself to a mighty king but was won over by the devil. Then how the devil was scared away and St. Christopher was won over by a hermit, Babylas, and his love for his Master, Christ, which is how he received his name. St. Christopher took the job of carrying people across a raging stream and met the unlikeliest of travelers that tested his strength and made him doubt. In the end St. Christopher was martyred for his allegiance to Christ and the four boys, to whom the story is being told, are left to ponder on the Patron Saint of those who travel any place in the world. After a near miss with a hasty automobile as they neared the stadium the boys decide that St. Christopher really is a miracle worker.
