When Constantine wanted to build a church on Mt. Calvary, St. Helen, although 80 years old, journeyed to Jerusalem where she is credited with finding the true cross on which Jesus was crucified. She was the mother of the Roman Emperor Constantine and after he victoriously became Emperor she became a Christian. Although Constantine proclaimed her an Empress, she used her wealth to help the poor and to build churches. This holy card, dedicated to her, is a two page card featuring the world famous artwork of Fratelli-Bonella with gold stamped trim. The front of the card has an image of St. Helen holding the one true cross. The back of the card has a prayer to St. Helen asking her give the one praying patience to carry the cross of the burdens they have in this life and thus faithfully serve God. The inside has a biography of St. Helen, her feast day, the meaning of her name and the people for whom she is considered a patron saint. The card measures 5-3/8 by 3-1/4 inches so is easy to carry or use as a bookmark in a bible or prayer book. It would be a nice memento to give the young person who has chosen Helen as her Confirmation name.
