In the annals of history very few individuals shone a light as beacons of courage, resilience, and unwavering determination. Joan of Arc, a young peasant girl from 15th-century France, is one of these shining key figures. Her story not only shaped the destiny of a nation but continues to inspire generations with her unwavering faith, fearlessness, and unwavering resolve.

At first revered as someone hearing ‘the voice of god’, she was put in charge to lead the French army into victory against the British. However, shortly after the triumph, she was sold to the British who burned her at the stake for being a witch. Only centuries after her death was she declared a martyr and saint. 

A brief story of Joan of Arc

Joan of Arc, a peasant girl born in 1412, claimed to receive divine visions instructing her to support Charles VII in reclaiming the French throne from English occupation during the Hundred Years' War. At 17, she convinced Charles of her mission and led the French army to significant victories, including the lifting of the siege of Orléans. Joan's military successes and unwavering faith inspired her troops.

However, she was captured by the Burgundians and sold to the English. Put on trial for heresy, witchcraft, and cross-dressing, Joan defended her visions but was found guilty and burned at the stake at the age of 19 in 1431.

Almost five centuries later, her conviction was overturned, declaring her innocent. In 1920, Joan of Arc was canonized as a saint. Her story highlights her fearlessness, military prowess, and resilience in the face of adversity. She defied societal norms and remains an enduring symbol of female empowerment. Joan's legacy continues to inspire people worldwide to believe in their convictions and overcome obstacles.

What she represents today

The story of Joan of Arc has touched many throughout the centuries. Despite her humble origins, she possessed an unshakable belief that God had chosen her to save France from English domination. How bold can one be, right?! Her unwavering determination was a testament to the power of belief.

A woman deeply devoted to her faith, which moved countries with her inspiring devotion and her relentless hope in divine assistance. 

A woman that stood her ground in light of her own death and that unapologetically spoke her truth that sprung from a source greater and more divine than her own human self. The flames she burnt in shone an even brighter light on her mission. 

The divinity of her visions gave hope to the greatest, impossible outcomes. She was robbed of her context and her roaring voice, but the truth that stood behind it all, made her a saint and inspiration for the empowerment of women until today. Her truth shines as a beacon of hope, making her a revered saint and inspiration.
