Saint Joan of Arc

Bonne Jour de Fete!

The patron saint of France, captives and the Women's Army Corps has often been maligned (yes, maligned) as some sort of feminist heroine.

She wouldn't be so feted if they heard this:

“About Jesus Christ and the Church, I simply know they’re just one thing, and we shouldn’t complicate the matter.” 

Support for an Israeli carpenter AND the Church doesn't sit well with the perpetually affronted and stupid.

And now, a song from the late great Edith Piaf that encapsulates Saint Joan of Arc's  mission and purpose.
