Nothing is known of the early life of Blessed Christopher. He joined the Dominican at San Eustorgio convent, Milan, Italy, and became a travelling preacher throughout Italy. Abbot at Our Lady of Mercy abbey in Taggai, Italy. He had the gift of prophecy, foreseeing plague, flood and invasion by Turks. Wrote four works on sermon preparation; the citations in them indicate extensive study of the early Church Fathers.
God of all truth, you made Blessed Christopher a faithful herald of your word to the people. By his life and ministry may we keep Christ ever in our thoughts and in the love of our hearts, for he lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. - General Calendar of the Order of Preachers
