St. Helen / Helena

Saint Helen (Helena) is the patron of divorced people, empresses, difficult marriages, converts, and archaeologists. She is the mother of Constantine the Great and at the age of 80 she led a group to the Holy Land in search of the True Cross. They unearthed three crosses and had an afflicted women touch all three. One of them immediately cured her and therefore they decided that that cross must be the True Cross. St. Helen then sent pieces of the cross to Rome and Constantinople. St. Helen's feast day is August 18th.
