Many people have asked why many of the products we sell feature St. Christopher.
First of all, yes, Christopher still is and always has been a Catholic saint. He is venerated as a powerful intercessor for anyone who is traveling or simply, "on the move," like so many athletes are. Also, Christopher, in carrying the child Jesus across the river, showed great strength, determination, and faithfulness to his chosen cause, qualities that all athletes try hard to uphold in their sport.
As Christians for centuries have venerated Christopher as a great patron and intercessor, as the always popular St. Christopher medal shows, so we at Sports Blessings recommend St. Christopher to all athletes as a role model and patron saint. May every athlete, like faithful Christopher, "bear Christ" in everything they do, on and off the field!
