St Bethany Saints Wall Cross
Genuine pewter, with prayer card.
Christopher is known as Christ-Bearer because he carried a small Child across a stream and the weight of the Child was almost unbearable. Arriving on the other side, the Child revealed himself as christ and explained that he was so heavy because he bore the weight of the world on himself. Christopher is one of the fourteen holy helpers. Patron of travelers, motorists, holy death, bus and cab drivers, epilepsy, hailstorms and lightning, sudden death.
