Saint Christopher is a saint venerated by Roman Catholics and Orthodox Christians, listed as a martyr killed in the
reign of the 3rd century Roman emperor Decius (reigned 249251).
The Eastern Orthodox Church venerates Saint Christopher on 9 May. The Tridentine Calendar allowed a commemoration of
Saint Christopher on 25 July only in private Masses. This restriction was lifted later (see General Roman Calendar as
in 1954). While the Roman Catholic Church still approves devotion to him, listing him in the Roman Martyrology among
the saints venerated on 25 July, it removed his feast day from the Roman Catholic calendar of saints in 1969. At that
time the church declared that this commemoration was not of Roman tradition, in view of the relatively late date (about
1550) and limited manner in which it was accepted into the Roman calendar.
