Motoring With A Saint

St. Christopher is the patron saint of travelers and motorists in the Catholic faith.  

When I was growing up, my grandfather had this St. Christopher double medallion in his Cadillac.  It's made of heavy metal, stamped "Italy" near the bottom of the cross, and was with him and my grandmother everywhere they drove.

I'm in possession of this medal now.  I just came across it as I was organizing my office cabinets.  I'm not any more religious today than I was 40 years ago, but I am sentimental so this St. Christopher medal will be traveling with us in the new truck.
