The Christophers look towards the Blessed Mother during this time of crisis in the world. We keep her close to our hearts by praying the rosary and recalling her constant care and love for Christ. She remains our protector and will always watch over us and comfort us in times of trial. 


Dear Friends,


     Please remember The Christophers on this Giving Tuesday. This is the 75th anniversary year of the founding of our organization, and our mission continues to meet a vital need in the hearts of so many people. Through our News Notes, prayer cards, Three Minutes a Day books, Christopher Closeup radio show and podcast, and Light One Candle syndicated columns, we carry on the mission set in motion so many years ago by our founder, Father James Keller, M.M.

     In a video message honoring the 75 year anniversary of The Christophers, Father Al Scott recently shared: “I first encountered The Christophers in the late 1940s when I was in high school and have been following them ever since. Their message of hope in a sometimes-dismal world is very current, especially today. The message, ‘It is better to light one candle than to curse the darkness,’ to me is what it’s all about. I distribute every year several hundred copies of Three Minutes a Day, the book that every day tells a true story of someone who makes that message become a reality. Every month, I distribute a number of copies of The Christopher News Notes, which I send to men in prison, in jails, people that are homeless, people in my parish, people that are searching for a message of hope. So, to The Christophers, in my gratitude for the 75 years they’ve been in existence, may they continue a long, long time, and bless everybody there and everybody connected with them. Blessings for your 75th anniversary!”

     We are grateful to Father Al for his kind words, and to all our Christopher friends for their outpouring of well-wishes. May the warmth of the Christmas spirit open the hearts of all people during this time of year, and may God continue to bless and protect our nation’s frontline workers, caregivers, doctors, nurses, and first responders, and strengthen them in their work, that they may find moments of peace and joy, this Christmas season and always.  Thank you for your support!


God bless!
