The story behind this Icon

An authentic Mount Athos theme by the holy fathers of Saint Gregory (Grigoriou) Monastery. This icon is an exact replica of the original artwork, with respect to the Byzantine tradition & style.

Saint Christopher was a man with a dog-like appearance who became a Christian and was known for his great strength. He was persecuted by the king who feared him and attempted to send his soldiers to arrest him. These soldiers turned into Christians and then the king ordered their execution. He then tried to deceive the Saint with two women, but they also became Christians themselves! So the King put Saint Christopher through various tortures, including being nailed to a brass instrument and cast into a well with a stone tied to him. Despite all these trials, Saint Christopher continued to proclaim his faith and eventually was beheaded, receiving the crown of martyrdom.

Saint Christopher is the patron of drivers
