Saint Joan of Arc
Feast Day -- May 10
Saint Joan lived in France during a time when it was at war. She was a teenager when she had visions and heard voices that told her to lead an army to fight for truth and save France from invaders. She bravely told the truth about her visions and voices and fought in many battles. However, Joan was accused of being against the Church and of being a witch. She was burned at the stake. Many books and movies have been written about her.
Patron of France, prisoners, and soldiers. William Shakespeare and Mark Twain both wrote about Saint Joan.
Saint Joan, may we always have the courage to listen to God and fight for what is right, no matter what the cost. Amen.
