We love this Saint Christopher Auto Dashboard Plaque. This solid bronze dashboard plaque is a thoughtful gift for new and seasoned drivers alike in vehicles of all kinds. Attach it (either with the built-in magnet or the adhesive tab) securely somewhere in your car or truck (the dashboard is perfect) as a traveling companion. Measuring just 1.9 inches x 1 inch, it is the ideal size to also travel with as a reminder in your pocket, your purse, or your traveling bag.
A Pocket Piece for Graduates and Travelers
Saint Christopher is the patron saint of travelers. Give this St. Christopher piece to those who are in transition or starting a new job, graduating, or embarking on a trip or adventure. May the spirit of St. Christopher be with them and protect them and those they meet:
As we travel through life,
may we seek to protect the life of Christ
within each person we encounter.
St. Christopher, go before us and show us the way.
Saint Christopher – “Christ-Bearer”
St. Christopher (Greek: Χριστόφορος, Christóforos, literally, “Christ-bearer”) is depicted on this plaque holding his staff while fording a river with the Christ Child on his shoulder. The Christ Child is carrying a ball—the “weight of the world.” (“You had on your shoulders not only the whole world but Him who made it. I am Christ your king, whom you are serving by this work.”) Although little is actually known about him, Saint Christopher is widely popular. In England, there are more wall paintings of St. Christopher than of any other saint, except for the Virgin Mary.
