Saint Helena‘s earnest Prayers and way of life encouraged her son Saint Constantine to become a Christian. Saints Constantine and Helena were Emperor and Emperess, but they also have the title of Equal to the Apostles because Saint Constantine was the first Emperor to legalise Christianity and openly confess his Christian beliefs. He also aided his mother to search for the Most Holy Cross of Christ. When Saint Helena travelled to the Holy Land, she found the Cave where Our Most Precious Lord Jesus Christ was Born, His Tomb, Cross, Nails, Crown of Thorns and much more.
She built 365 Churches in the Holy Land, all of which were later destroyed except for the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem which stands to this day. Saint Constantine and Helena also built the Church of the Holy Sepulchre at the Tomb of Christ.
