The Annual visit of the Sacred Miraculous Missionary Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe, commissioned by St Pope John Paul II to evangelize the Americas and the world will be in San Antonio Jan 7-Feb 8, 2021 at the home of Her guardian Darlene Jimenez, Director of the St Joan of Arc Brigade Apostolate, which as many of you know is a prayer apostolate in San Antonio. For all those who were anticipating a visit with Our Lady in person, we sadly are sharing that the Chancery has requested that we cancel all public and private venues for Our Lady this year due to Covid-19.

If anyone would like to send a prayer request, they can text them to Darlene Jimenez at (210) 771-5757 and the requests will be placed in the prayer petition box in front of Our Lady throughout Her visit. Darlene will personally pray with Our Lady for those petitions. We know that the healing powers of the Missionary Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe are not restricted by time, place nor circumstance. Here mere presence in our city assures us that our prayer requests will always be heard and responded to by Our Lady. I join Her in holding everyone and their special intentions in prayer.

Our Lady of Guadalupe , Pray for us. St Joan of Arc, Pray for us.

Director/St Joan of Arc Brigade

MISSION
The St. Joan of Arc Brigade’s mission is to respond to our Holy Father’s call to advance and strengthen the culture of life and to foster the conversion of souls through prayer and works with unwavering fidelity to the teachings of the Catholic Church.

WHY JOAN OF ARC?
Many people feel that Joan of Arc was a messenger of God. It is well documented by historians and scholars that Joan of Arc believed she was visited by three saints who gave her the revelation that she would lead the French to victory. These three saints were Saint Margaret of Antioch, Saint Catherine of Alexandria and Saint Michael. As a result, most Catholics see her visions as a divine inspiration, which has led her to being known as Saint Joan of Arc, or Messenger Joan of Arc. She is known as a skilled strategist and tactician, for her bravery, leadership, humility, honesty, simplicity, and spirituality.

“In our time more than ever before, the chief strength of the wicked, lies in the cowardice and weakness of good men…All the strength of Satan’s reign is due to the easy-going weakness of Catholics.”

—Pope Pius X at the beatification ceremony of St. Joan of Arc.
