Saint Helena: Patron Saint against Fire

Extract from Saint Helena: “She used her high position and wealth in the service of her religious enthusiasm, and helped build churches throughout the empire. At the age of 80 she led a group to the Holy Land to search for the True Cross. She and her group unearthed three crosses in 326. At the suggestion of Saint Macarius of Jerusalem, she took them to a woman afflicated with an incurable disease, and had her touch each one. One of them immediately cured her, and it was pronounced the True Cross. She built a church on the spot where the cross was found, and sent pieces to Rome and Constantinople; the Feast of the Holy Cross on 14 September celebrates the event. Thus in art, she is usually depicted holding a wooden cross.”

We, at the CTF/SOS DRS have prayed for  the intercession of St. Helena on behalf of those affected by the following catastrophes:
