In this time of extreme fear and cowtowing to the secular mob, here are St Joan of Arc quotes to help us build some fortitude.
St Joan of Arc was a simple peasant girl, but boy, was she brave.
We need to remind ourselves today that we are not supposed to fear men, but to fear God.
We are not to fear loss of possession or life, but loss of our souls.
It is quite disappointing that many of our bishops and priests are submitting to the mob, instead of submitting to God.
We are lacking fortitude.
May these quotes from St Joan of Arc fortify us and help us to do what is right, to the Glory of God.
St Joan of Arc, pray for us!
