Saint Helena and the True Cross
By Louis de Wohl. There is a New Year tradition in Medjugorje where you choose a saint - actually, the saint chooses you - to walk with you during the year. Saint Helena chose to walk with me during this year. What an amazing woman! This historical book for young and old alike takes you on an exciting adventure in the life of Saint Helena, mother of the Emperor Constantine, who uncovered the Cross of Christ in Jerusalem. Walk with her as she becomes a Christian at the time of the persecution of the Christians and the rise to power of her son, Constantine. Although Saint Helena and the True Cross is suggested for youth 9 to 15 years of age, it is just as enjoyable for adults. Softcover, 158 pages.
