Constantine the Great

I was wondering if we can Venerate St. Constantine like St. Joan of Arc? I have always been a little wary of him for some reason.

St Constantine is a pre-schism saint and is publicly venerated in the liturgy of the Byzantine Catholic Rite. He is more popular in the Byzantine East than the West. :slight_smile:

But since he is pre-schism, I’m assuming that means he can still be venerated by Westerners, like his mother St. Helena.

Yes. See: However, I do not think that he is included in the Roman Calendar for feast days. :slight_smile:
