Description 

Pray for safe travels with this Saint Christopher Motorists Prayer Card. 

According to legend, Christopher's given name was Reprobus and was a man of great size and strength. He encountered a hermit who instructed him on the Christian faith. The hermit suggested that Reprobus use his strength to help travelers cross the river.

One day a child arrived to be carried across the river. Reprobus took the child upon his shoulders, but as he crossed the river, the child grew heavier. The child revealed that he was Jesus and answered that he was heavy with the weight of the world's sins. When they reached the opposite bank, Christ then baptized Reprobus in the river and gave him his Christian name “Christopher”  which means "Christ-bearer."

This laminated prayer card has a beautiful depiction of St. Christopher carrying the Christ child across the river. The prayer on the back calls upon St. Christopher for his protection and intercession while driving. 


Back of card:

Grant me, O Lord, a steady hand and watchful eye, that no one shall be hurt as I pass by.

You gave life; I pray no act of mine, may take away or mar that gift of Thine. Shelter those, dear Lord, who bear my company, from the evils of fire and all calamity.

Teach me to use my car for others' need; nor miss through love of undue speed the beauty of the world; that thus I may, with joy and courtesy go on my way.

Saint Christopher, holy patron of travelers, protect me and lead me safely to my destiny. Amen.
