Many saints were born during or after the time of Jesus. St Helena was born heaps earlier around 200s.

Who & what is a spirit filled person?
A spirit filled person is someone who follows & devotes their time to God. Also a spirit filled person is someone who uses their fruits & gifts of the spirit properly.
