This patron of travelers gets his patronage from a thirteenth-century legend about a giant man. This man lived alone along the bank of a raging river. He would help travelers cross the raging river in safety, so it happened one day he helped a small child traveling alone to cross. Thus was derived the universally accepted imagery of the patron saint of travel carrying a small child on his shoulders as he crosses a turbulent river. The legend has it the child Jesus is the one on his shoulders being provided safety in his travels. This legendary figure was supposedly based upon a giant man who lived in the fourth century.
