St. Joan of Arc (Early) Feast Day..........May 29




Today I will post, one day early, a holy card in memory of St. Joan of Arc.
Patroness of France
Feast Day May 30th


"One life is all we have and we live it as we believe in living it. But to sacrifice what you are and to live without belief, that is a fate more terrible than dying. "
" O God who made this beautiful earth, when will it be ready to receive your saints? How long, O Lord?
How long?"

Hey there, welcome back! I hope you had a wonderful trip. Thanks for turning the comments back on. I've missed them.

This card is stunning and the text that is posted is even more beautiful. Did you notice that the card was printed at Orleans? --straight from the heart of Joan's real experience.

I wish we had someone like St. Joan ready to be a leader today. Where is St. Joan when we need her?

Thanks again.
Kay

Our dearest Micki,
Hugs and kisses to you, dearest one! Yes, we have all missed you and the love that comes with these holy cards. Welcome back! :-)

Micki, you know that my husband's favorite saint is Joan of Arc. I sent him through email Kay's and now this one. Yes, this is just a beautiful! He will be thrilled!

"Where is St. Joan when we need her?" Kay, my husband said the exact same thing!

Love to you both and to everyone!
Easter:-)
p.s. John, thanks for all your interpretations!

Kay and Easter - Thank you for being the first to comment since I turned it back on. I'm going to pray my spammer stays away since I put letter identification on.

Kay, I didn't notice about the card being printed in Orleans...thanks for pointing that out. What a wonderful comment regarding "where is St. Joan when we need her?" Made me nod my head and also smile...we do know where she is...we just need to call on her.

Easter - what a wonderful saint for your husband to be close to. I'm sure she is blessing him with a special blessing today.

John - Love my hidden "eskimo". You are so funny. And to think I pictured you as always so "proper."
