100th Anniversary of Joan of Arc’s Beatification

This April marks the 100th anniversary of Saint Joan of Arc’s Beatification by the Roman Catholic Church. The official pronouncement was issued on April 11, 1909, and a ceremony attended by thousands of people was held at the Vatican on April 18, 1909. I set up a special page at MaidOfHeaven.com to celebrate that contains a picture of the ceremony, the translation of the official pronouncement and a newspaper article describing the ceremony. Just visit Joan of Arc’s Beatification

Joan of Arc for Women's History Month

March is Women’s History Month but I have seen little about Joan of Arc anywhere. Is there a better female role model than Joan of Arc? She was strong and she was pure which are traits that seem rare for women in today’s world. I would think that Christian women in particular would be drawn to Joan. Perhaps the lack of attention results from the same reason that motivated to me to write about her and create my website. The real Joan is little known in today’s world which is really sad considering all of the great resources available. Before March and Women’s History Month is over, let’s all try to better share Joan of Arc’s amazing history with as many women as possible.
