One of my favorite saints is St. Joan of Arc. Burning at the stake was not a pleasant way to die–but there is much more to the story. I read a few books about her and am amazed at her courage to follow God’s plan even when it meant going against the historic traditions of women roles and having the courage and power to influence the King of France. She lead and army and because the saints Michael, Catherine, and Margaret had told her to do this she was arrested and called a heretic and accused of witchcraft.
