in this blog about SIMPLE GIFTS i want to highlight some of the gifts i've made for family, friends, donated to ThePreemieProject @ UIHC(University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics), & St.Mary's IC Prayer Shawl Ministry (of which i am facilitator)
Before the 1969 reform of the Roman calendar, Christopher was listed as a martyr who died under Decius. Nothing else is known about him. There are several legends about him including the one in which he was crossing a river when a child asked to be carried across. When Christopher put the child on his shoulders he found the child was unbelievably heavy.The child, according to the legend, was Christ carrying the weight of the whole world. This was what made Christopher patron saint of travelers and is invoked against storms, plagues, etc.. His former feast day is July 25.
