Saint Helena of Constantinople (c. AD 248– c. 330), also known as Saint Helen, was the mother of Emperor Constantine the Great. Born in the 3rd century, she played a significant role in the early Christian Church. Helena embraced Christianity later in life and became a devout Christian, supporting the faith and its followers. She is best known for her pilgrimage to the Holy Land, where she discovered the True Cross of Christ and other Christian relics. Helena’s discovery of the True Cross is commemorated in the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross. Saint Helena is venerated as a saint and her feast day is celebrated on August 18th. She is remembered for her piety, charity, and contributions to the spread of Christianity.
