Reprobus went in search of Christ and found a hermit who taught him about Christianity. He wanted to serve Christ but could not do the fasting and prayer required at the time. The hermit suggested that he serve Christ by helping people cross a dangerous river. After awhile of doing that, he was approached by a child who asked for his help getting across the river. When he picked the child up, he found that he was unbelievable heavy. When they arrived to the other side of the river, he found that he had been carrying Jesus who, in turn, had the weight of the world on his shoulders. Reprobus was renamed Christopher which means Christ-bearer which why the jewelry is called Saint Christopher pendants today.
