Patroness of Soldiers and France
Figurine comes nicely displayed in a clear fronted box with the the Story of the saint on the outside and a prayer card inside.
During 1412, in the small French village of Domremy, Jeanne d’ Arc was born. Joan of Arc was a gentle young girl who prayed very often and helped others. She was indeed, very spiritual and spent many hours in prayer. She also spent time helping others and those in need. Joan of Arc began to hear “voices” when she was about 13 years old. She believed that these voices carried messages from God to her. By the time she was 17 years old, her belief was that God wanted her to find the true king of France and help him to claim his throne. This was during the times of the Hundred Years war. Joan was able to predict the happening during the war and identify the king when he was in disguise.
Joan became a leader during the Hundred Year war and led the army to victories carrying the banner that stated “Jesus, Maria”. During the battle for Compeigne, Joan was captured and was sold to the English who surrendered her to the Bishop of Beauvis.
Joan was put on trial in Rouen and she was asked questions that caused her to give answers that proved to be against her will. She refused to retract the answers that expressed her beliefs, visions and voices. Joan was judged by her statement as a heretic and was condemned to death by being burned at the stake. Joan was later cleared of her crimes and was much later canonized in 1920.

O mighty Lord, I pray that You will be my shield as I do battle against ignorance, cruelty and injustice.

Through the power of Christ, our Lord, Amen.
