Who Is Joan of Arc?
St. Joan of Arc is one of the most widely known Catholic Saints! She was and is amazing because she she lived her life for the glory of God.
Born in France in 1412, St. Joan of Arc was a special little girl, and was said to have a fear of fire. At 13 she heard the voices of St Michael the Arch-angle, St. Margaret, and St. Catherine. They instructed her to rid the English from French territory. By 16 she was asking to visit the French Royal Court and goes on to lead an army of men to victory.
She was certain her mission was the Will of the Lord, and persevered in this seemingly impossible battle. She was captured and sold to the English, and ultimately burned at the steak. Tradition tells us she was burnt to ash, but that her heart was still beating. It had to be chained and thrown into the Seine River. Representing her love and passion for the Will of the Lord, she lived and died conquering fear and trusting in God.
Her feast day is May 30th and she is the patron saint of soldiers and France!
