St. Helena

St. Helena (c 300AD) was the mother of Emperor Constantine, who ended Christian persecution in the Roman empire. St. Helena spent her time building churches and restoring holy shrines. In Jerusalem, she found three crosses at the place of Jesus’ crucifixion. She knew which was the True Cross because it was the one that healed a sick woman who touched all the crosses. St. Helena’s feast day is on 18 August.
