Saints for May

Saint Joan of Arc  1412–1431. Feast Day: May 30.
Patron of: France. Soldiers. Captives
.
A mystic with the gift of prophecy, Joan was a young French peasant girl who was counseled by three voices, Michael the Archangel, Margaret of Antioch, and Catherine of Alexandria. Using their guidance she was able to inspire the French to free themselves from British domination. She is shown with her banner reading “Jesus Mary,” with which she led troops into battle. She is surrounded by lilies for purity. This card was made before she was declared a saint and was still a Blessed.
