St. Helena Comments

Empress mother of Constantine the Great. She was a native of Bithynia, who married the then Roman general Constantius I Chlorus about 270. Constantine was born soon after, and in 293, Constantius was made Caesar, or junior emperor. He divorced Helena to marry co Emperor Maximianís stepdaughter.

    I learned a lot about ST Helena, by carrying the cross, she is teaching us to carry our problems knowing that Jesus died for us and he will be with us for ever.

    I've been searching for Saint Helena because my grandma's name was Helen so I wanted to use her name for confirmation as a sign of respect towards her. When I did look her up I was estatic she is such an interesting Saint!

    St. Helena, I've been blessed with many visits to Santa Crucia in Jerusaleme, the Church in Rome where the relics, nails, the cross beam of the holy cross of Jesus is honoured. Catholics visit this church which is one of the "sette chiesa" of Rome, i.e one of the seven Churches that Catholics visit. We honour you St. Helena, for the glory you brought to Christ in promoting and spreading Christianity in Rome after it had suffered several centuries of persecution. Pray for us who live in countries where Christians are a small minority, that our faith may grow even stronger on account of that. May we be witnesses to Christ. I also ask for your holy intercession of the complete healing of my beloved grandson. Free him from all afflictions. This I ask in Jesus name. Amen.

    My name is Angelo and I was born in the largest town of Malta Birkirkara.The patron saint of Birkirkara is St.Helen. The feast of the cross with the statue of St. Helen is held on the 3rd of May and that of St.Helen in August the 1st Sunday after the 18th which is her day of feast. Since St. Helen became an Empress her feast in this town is held in the morning as it is fitting for a queen.The statue which I can say is the most beautiful statue of all the statues in Malta is taken out of the Basilica of Birkirkara at 8.00am and a procession is held around the streets of the old part of Birkirkara up to 10.30am. After that High Mass in Honour of St.Helen is said at The Basilica. If you like to know more follow this link.

    Regards to All who are reading my post.

    I have been praying to her for help with my marriage. Today I was worring a lot about my marriage, than this eve when I looked up at the TV, ST Helena church was on the news. WOW, I think she is telling me it will be ok!

    Because of her search for the cross, Helen is the female patron saint of archaeologists. Due to my fascination with archaeology (and, if I stay with the career I currently want, she'll be my patron saint), I chose Helen for my Confirmation name. ;)
