Kontakion in the fourth tone
Thou who wast terrigying both in strength and in countenance, for thy Creator’s sake thou didst surrender thyself willingly to them that sought thee:
for thou didst persuade both them and the women that sought to arouse in thee the fire of lust, and they followed thee in the path of martyrdom. And in torments thou didst prove to be courageous, wherefore, we have gained thee as our great protector, O great christopher.
Also inspired by the works of Albrecht Durer. this piece shows St. Christopher crossing the torrent with the Christ child on his shoulders. Which is where the name Christopher comes, “topher” being the word for bearer.
