St. Helena, The True Cross

Today is the feast of St. Helena, mother of the Emperor Constantine. Her discovery of the true cross did much to originate and popularize the Feast of the Holy Cross beside restoring to Christian worship many pagan shrines built over places of importance in the life of Christ. Our Holy Cross windows features the miracle involved in her authentication of the true Cross of Christ.
