Prayer to St Helen

st-helenSaint Helen,
beloved Patroness of our Parish.
You left these Celtic lands
to become the first Christian
Empress of Rome;
You were cast off by your husband,
and so are the patroness of the Divorced;
and in old age you went as a
pilgrim to the Holy Land,
and there sought out and
recovered the True Cross.
Teach us also to seek and find
the truth of the cross
in our own lives and history,
and through it, renew our faith and hope
in the resurrection of Christ,
our Saviour.
