How to Pray the Chaplet of St Christopher
His memorial was on July 25 (Catholic - Downgraded)
and on May 9 (Eastern Orthodox)
Patron Saint of travelers
On the three sets of three beads, pray
1 Our Father, 1 Hail Mary and
1 Glory Be for each set.
On the last bead, pray
Grant me O Lord a steady hand and watchful eye.
That no one shall be hurt as I pass by.
Thou givest life. I pray no act of mine
may take away or mar that gift of Thine.
Shelter those, dear Lord, who bear me 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 o my destiny.
In conclusion, say this prayer on the medal
Dear Saint Christopher, you have inherited a
beautiful name - Christopher - as a result of a wonderful legend that
while carrying people across a raging stream you also carried the Child
Jesus. Teach us to be true Christ-bearers to those who do not know Him.
Protect all drivers who transport those who bear Christ within them.
