Joan of Arc (1412-1431) was in her father’s garden at age 13 when she saw visions of Saint Michael, Saint Catherine, and Saint Margaret. They implored her to rally the French armies and drive out the invading English forces. Joan of Arc became known later as the Maid of Orléans and after her capture and a politically motivated trial was executed by burning. She once said: “I am not afraid... I was born to do this.” and “Act, and God will act.”
