WAYFARERS' FRIEND

Two sailors diffidently approached the counter at a service club during war, and asked for St. Christopher medals. When they had received the medals, them said to the director, ""Maybe I ought to tell you we're not Catholics but our buddies said it would be all right with St. Christopher if we wore one. You we're due for the Pacific and Joe and I think it'd be swell if St. Christopher ing us pray for a return ticket."" Then ensued a conversation which ended in one sailors asking: ""Say tell us something about him, will you?"" So came this book being. It is the familiar tale of the pagan giant who resolved to serve the Prince in the world and how through the little Christ Child he learned that Chrd the strongest Prince. Then follows the less well-known story of his later life . As the author states, many millions of people Catholic and non-Catholic turn to St. Christopher during the war. It is just as well for them to know who and what the church teaches about him, otherwise the St. Christopher medal is the level of a rabbit's foot. This is an easily read book and it is quite children and young people as well as adults.
