"Who is going to listen to a 17-year-old peasant with no training as a knight, no battle experience, no connections? Well, they did listen, thanks to her voices, her daunting courage, and her flaming charisma. She heard the voices of angels and saints, and they were the source of her power."

—St. Joseph Sr. Joan Sauro in "Steel spines and shivers," published on Global Sisters Report. Today, May 30, is the feast day of St. Joan of Arc.
