Saint Joan of Arc is the patron saint of soldiers, prisoners, and the Women’s Army Corps. The Saint Joan of Arc Society includes individuals who have contributed $10,000-$24,999 in a given year. An annual Mass will be celebrated on the Memorial of Saint Joan of Arc (May 30) in recognition of the generosity of this donor group for their personal intentions.
In the face of your enemies, in the face of harassment, ridicule, and doubt, you held firm in your faith. Even in your abandonment, alone and without friends, you never wavered in your faith. Even as you faced your own mortality, you remained steadfast in your faith. I pray that I may be as bold in my beliefs as you, St. Joan of Arc. I ask that you ride alongside me in my own battles. Help me be mindful that what is worthwhile can be won when I persist. Help me hold firm in my faith. Help me believe in my ability to act well and wisely. Amen.
