“Behold, the virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Emmanuel – which means God with us.”

“Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace, good will toward men.”

At this time of year when we celebrate the birth of Christ, I hope everyone will remember how much our beloved St. Joan of Arc loved Jesus and devoted her life to serving Him. Joan was so focused on Jesus that she had His name along with His mother’s emblazoned on the banner that she carried to lead her men into battle. She also closed most of her letters with Jesus Maria right after her own signature. Of course what is most telling to me about the focus of Joan’s life were her final words “Jesus, Jesus, Jesus” as she departed this world to be with her Lord in His kingdom.

A very merry CHRISTmass to all.

Jesus Maria
