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.
“Abortion… cannot be a human right — it is the very opposite. It is a deep wound in society.”
—Pope Benedict XVI
