St. Christopher - Pocket Saints


St. Christopher was a humble man who worked to help carry people and items across a river.  According to legend, St. Christopher bore the weight of the world on his shoulders when a child asked to be carried across the river.  As they forged on, the child became extremely heavy and St. Christopher, a man of impressive physical stature, strained under the pressure.  When they made it to the other side, the child told him that he was the Christ child and his weight was the weight of the world.  Moved by this encounter, St. Christopher went on to share Christ with the world!  St. Christopher is the patron saint of travelers, surfers, sailors, transportation, and a holy death.  

Introducing Pocket Saints from Gloria & Praise!  Each Pocket Saint is hand created from two wooden beads which are hand painted.  After being hand-painted & assembled, the "saints" are strung on Olive color premium gutted paracord and finished with a high-quality black metal spring mini-carabiner buckle.  

Pocket Saints are perfect for attaching to bags, your key chain, a zipper, or anywhere else you choose!  Pocket Saints make the perfect gift!

Note about handmade products: 

As with many of our products, these items are handmade in small batches.  This means that though we try to make products uniform, there may be slight differences from what you see in the product images (i.e. slight changes in knot formation, length, etc) due to the nature of handmade items.
