Traditionally, you will see St. Christopher carrying a child, however over the years the image has changed some. The image was originally formed from the legend as told in the Catholic Encyclopedia that depicted Christopher carrying travelers across water to safe and dry land. In this story, it further depicts a child who grew heavier with each and very step. When questioned as to why this was happening, it was shared that the child was in fact Jesus Christ and the weight of the child represented the "weight of the world". The tidbit of this story was dated back to some 300+ years after Christopher's time, but has captured the hearts of believers around the world. St Christopher's image has been used by many to protect and keep their loved ones safe during times of travel.
