Amy in the LA Times

From In Spite of It All, St. Christopher Hangs In There:

"For young believers, the dichotomy between the historical man and his legend is neatly explained in a children's book, 'Loyola Kids Book of Saints,' which is sold in the cathedral gift shop.

In it, author Amy Wellborn writes, 'We don't know much about Christopher... but the stories we tell most often about Christopher [are] stories we've invented to help us figure out the best ways to serve God.' "
