Patron Saint of Travelers

This being All Saints’ Day, I figured I’d post something saintly. The traditional patron saint of travelers was St Christoper, but his canonical status is questionable, because he was probably a mere legend. In fact, the main story of St Christopher, that of carrying a divinity across a river, was also tied to other other figures of myth. At any rate, I will invoke the blessing of St Christopher on behalf of another traveler- Donald Trump is leaving New York for Florida. We never liked him anyway, and are glad to see him go.

I’m also going to invoke the blessings of St Christopher to protect Trump on another journey, not across a river, but up the river. Pax vobiscum, people!
