Thank you for visiting The Christophers’ blog, where we share stories of faith, hope, and charity, grounded in the ancient proverb “It’s better to light one candle than to curse the darkness.”

The Christophers’ Mission Statement

      Founded in 1949 by Father James Keller, M.M., the mission of The Christophers is to encourage people of all ages, and from all walks of life, to use their God-given talents to make a positive difference in the world. The mission is best expressed in The Christophers’ motto: “It’s better to light one candle than to curse the darkness.” 
      We believe that each person has a God-given mission to fulfill, a particular job to do that has been given to no one else. Love and truth come to us through God, but these gifts are not ours to keep. By sharing them with others each of us becomes a Christ-bearer, a “Christopher” in the most fundamental sense of that word. 
      It is through our literature, radio shows, podcasts, awards and leadership courses that we at The Christophers work toward our mission, bringing positive and constructive values into the mainstream of life.
