For those of us who identify with Saint Christopher, the patron saint of travellers, this rosary holder makes a perfect gift. This beautiful pine Saint Christopher rosary box features a silver and gold plated icon of Saint Christopher on the lid. The box is designed to hold 5mm-8mm bead rosaries.
The inside diameter is 2 inches.
Saint Christopher is portrayed here crossing a river with a child on his back. Legend has it that Christopher assisted travellers cross a river safely. One day, a small child asked to be carried across. The child became heavier and heavier until Christopher so much so that Christopher barely made it across the river. It was then that the Christ child revealed himself to Christopher and told him that he had carried the weight of the world on his shoulders.
