The finding of the Holy Cross (326).
Saint Helen, desiring to visit the Holy places there, made a journey into Palestine in 326. On her arrival at Jerusalem she was inspired with a great desire to find the Holy Cross. The Holy sepulchre was uncovered and near it were found three crosses and the nails which had pierced Our Saviour’s body, with the title which had been fixed to His cross. The discovery of the cross would have happened in the spring.
