England controlled most of the land that is now France in the early 1400s. At this time, Joan of Arc was a farm girl who was appointed by Saints Margaret of Antioch, Michael the Archangel, and Catherine of Alexandria to find the true king of France. She led an army to defend France, and when she was captured the new King Charles made no move to rescue her. She was burned at the stake after being accused of witchcraft. St Joan of Arc is the patron saint for France, servicewomen, soldiers, virgins, altar servers, mass servers, and youth. Saint Joan of Arc memorial feast day is May 30th.
