Saint Joan of Arc

n the face of your enemies, in the face of harassment, ridicule, and doubt, you held firm in your faith. Even in your abandonment, alone and without friends, you held firm in your faith. Even as you faced your own mortality, you held firm in your faith. We pray you, that we may be as bold in our faith as you were in yours. O blessed saint of God, we beg accompany us with your prayers as we face our own daily battles. Help us to be mindful that what is worthwhile can be won when there is persistence. Help us hold firm to the true faith without which we cannot please God. Show us how to always be attentive to the voice of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
