History: How St Helen discovered the true cross of Jesus Christ in 326 AD

Did you know that after the death of our Lord Jesus Christ, his cross was later found by a woman. Her name is Helen and she is a saint who is recognized by the Catholic and Orthodox Church. she was also the mother of Emperor Constantine the great. In the year 326, she ordered some men to dig mount Calvary and search for the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ and after digging, they found three crosses but they did not know the exact cross that belonged to Jesus Christ. 

In order to know the real cross, they brought a sick woman and they put her on two of the crosses but she was still sick but when she was put on the third cross, she was healed from her sickness immediately. In the Catholic Church, the feast of finding the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ is on the 3rd of May while the feast for the exaltation of our Lord Jesus Christ is on the 14th of September.
