Helenathe Empress

Helena, the Empress, mother of Constantine, became a Christian after the defeat of Maxentius. Iraclibim says she visited Jerusalem-in 326 and discovered the Holy Sepulchre and the three crosses. She was canonised after death, her festival being August 8th. There is a saint in the Greek Church of the same name, who lived in the 10th century, and was of noble birth.

“Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.”
John 15:13
