St. Helena belonged to a poor Pagan family. She met the Roman general Constantius, they fell in love, and were married. Her son Constantine became emperor, but his father had to renounce Helena and remarried for political reasons, and in order to become the Cesar. Helena was completely abandoned. When Constantius died, Constantine seeks out his mother and together they experienced an extraordinary vision of the cross with a sign of light that said: “With this symbol you will conquer.” Constantine later became a defender of Christianity.
