Helena First Pilgrim of the Holy Land
In 326 A.D., St. Helena, mother of Constantine the Great, Emperor of Rome, embarked on the first pilgrimage ever made to the Holy Land, to atone for her son's great sin. Helena kept her solemn promise to find the holy places touched by the life and death of Jesus, and to build churches there to honor Him. In this beautiful film shot on location at these very locations, follow St. Helena to Bethlehem, Nazareth, Gethsemane, Golgotha, the Holy Sepulcher and more, retracing with her the footsteps of Jesus. Narrated by Academy Award-winner Ben Kingsley. Includes lovely bonus film of a musical celebration of the life and land of Jesus.
