St. Christopher Boat Medal Keychain
The design on this St. Christopher Boat Medal Keychain features a stylized and modern likeness of St. Christopher, holding a staff, and carrying a child. This reminds us of the famous story of St. Christopher operating a ferry. In this legend, St. Christopher has been operating a ferry for quite some time to help people ford the river. A child asks Christopher to carry him across the river. Christopher agrees, but when he does so, he finds the child to be exceedingly heavy and barely makes it across the river. When he finally reaches the other side, he says to the child: “You have put me in the greatest danger. I do not think the whole world could have been as heavy on my shoulders as you were.” The child replies: “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.” The child then vanished.
This story is a reminder also of Christ’s words: whatsoever you do unto the least of my brethren, so too you do unto me. Christ is in every person. It reminds us of the importance of kindness to travelers. And it reminds us of the importance of kindness when we are travelers – the need to be grateful to our hosts and to pray for protection.
