St Christopher Pendants
Saint Christopher is the patron saint of travellers, drivers, sailors, storms and gardeners. Many people never go on a trip without wearing a Saint Christopher pendant.
The story of Saint Christopher goes like this… One day a small child asked to be carried across a river. As he was crossing the river rose and the child became so heavy that Christopher staggered under the burden. It was only with great determination that Saint Christopher was able to deliver the child to the other side.
Saint Christopher asked the child why he was so heavy. The child told him that he had borne upon his back the world and Him who created it. The child was Christ and when Saint Christopher carried Him, he also carried the weight of the whole world on his shoulders.
The Saint Christopher pendant is usually worn on a necklace and is used as a lucky travel talisman. It is said to bless travellers who bear it with luck and good fortune to those on their journeys.
Carrying a Saint Christopher charm on you bring you health, prosperity and faith. It is worn to engulf you in an aura of protection to keep you happy, healthy, safe and secure.

Runes were primarily created to function as letters to make up a language. Each rune symbol was an ideographic or pictographic symbol of some cosmological principle or power.
