St. Joan of Arc's Feast Day Celebrated at MaidOfHeaven.com


The Annual Feast Day for Saint Joan of Arc is May 30th which is the anniversary of her death. In order to celebrate her amazing life on this special day MaidOfHeaven.com has set up a special page containing historic paintings and eyewitness descriptions of her final moments.

Louisville, KY, May 30, 2009 --(PR.com)-- Saint Joan of Arc’s annual Feast Day is May 30th which is the anniversary of her death when she was burned for heresy in Rouen on May 30, 1431. In order to celebrate Saint Joan of Arc’s Feast Day and provide more details about the remarkable way that she lived and died, MaidOfHeaven.com has set up a special page with historic paintings depicting her death as well as several eyewitness accounts of her last moments.

Why is Saint Joan of Arc still remembered today? Joan’s life was one that contained both great triumph as well as great tragedy. Given command of the French armies at only seventeen years of age she was able to completely reverse a war that had been going on for almost 100 years that the French were about to lose. In spite of saving her country, Joan was ultimately captured by her enemies and burned as a heretic because of their great fear of her as a leader. The story of Joan’s life has inspired people down through the ages with her example of bravery and self sacrifice. Sir Winston Churchill, the legendary leader of Britain in WWII, once wrote that: "Joan was a being so uplifted from the ordinary run of mankind that she finds no equal in a thousand years." Mark Twain, the great American writer, described her as “perhaps the only entirely unselfish person whose name has a place in profane history."
