Saints Alive! | St. Joan of Arc

After overcoming her own reluctance, and that of the military and ecclesiastical authorities, Joan of Arc heroically led the French army in battle during the Hundred Years War between France and England. Still at a young age this Catholic heroine died a martyr's death. The patron Saint of France famously said, "I am not afraid. I was born for this!"
