Giovanna d'Arco è un'eroina nazionale francese, venerata come santa dalla Chiesa cattolica, oggi conosciuta anche come la Pulzella d'Orléans.

Riunì al proprio Paese parte del territorio caduto in mano agli inglesi, contribuendo a risollevarne le sorti durante la guerra dei cent'anni, guidando vittoriosamente le armate francesi contro quelle inglesi. Catturata dai Borgognoni davanti a Compiègne, Giovanna fu venduta agli inglesi che la sottoposero a un processo per eresia, al termine del quale, il 30 maggio 1431, fu condannata al rogo e arsa viva.

Nel 1456 papa Callisto III, al termine di una seconda inchiesta, dichiarò la nullità di tale processo.

Beatificata nel 1909 da Pio X e canonizzata nel 1920 da Benedetto XV, Giovanna fu proclamata patrona di Francia.

„I was thirteen when I had a Voice from God for my help and guidance.“

— Joan of Arc
Context: I was thirteen when I had a Voice from God for my help and guidance. The first time that I heard this Voice, I was very much frightened; it was mid-day, in the summer, in my father's garden. I had not fasted the day before. I heard this Voice to my right, towards the Church; rarely do I hear it without its being accompanied also by a light. This light comes from the same side as the Voice. Generally it is a great light. Since I came into France I have often heard this Voice. … If I were in a wood, I could easily hear the Voice which came to me. It seemed to me to come from lips I should reverence. I believe it was sent me from God. When I heard it for the third time, I recognized that it was the Voice of an Angel. This Voice has always guarded me well, and I have always understood it; it instructed me to be good and to go often to Church; it told me it was necessary for me to come into France. You ask me under what form this Voice appeared to me? You will hear no more of it from me this time. It said to me two or three times a week: 'You must go into France.' My father knew nothing of my going. The Voice said to me: 'Go into France!' I could stay no longer. It said to me: 'Go, raise the siege which is being made before the City of Orleans. Go!' it added, 'to Robert de Baudricourt, Captain of Vaucouleurs: he will furnish you with an escort to accompany you.' And I replied that I was but a poor girl, who knew nothing of riding or fighting. I went to my uncle and said that I wished to stay near him for a time. I remained there eight days. I said to him, 'I must go to Vaucouleurs.' He took me there. When I arrived, I recognized Robert de Baudricourt, although I had never seen him. I knew him, thanks to my Voice, which made me recognize him. Second public examination (22 February 1431) http://www.stjoan-center.com/Trials/sec02.html

„The light comes at the same time as the Voice. … I will not tell you all; I have not leave; my oath does not touch on that.“

— Joan of Arc
Context: The light comes at the same time as the Voice. … I will not tell you all; I have not leave; my oath does not touch on that. My Voice is good and to be honored. I am not bound to answer you about it. I request that the points on which I do not now answer may be given me in writing. … You shall not know yet. There is a saying among children, that 'Sometimes one is hanged for speaking the truth.'" [She is asked : Do you know if you are in the grace of God? ] If I am not, may God place me there; if I am, may God so keep me. I should be the saddest in all the world if I knew that I were not in the grace of God. But if I were in a state of sin, do you think the Voice would come to me? I would that every one could hear the Voice as I hear it. Third public examination (24 February 1431) http://www.stjoan-center.com/Trials/sec03.html; part of this testimony has sometimes been paraphrased: If I am not in the state of grace, may God put me there; and if I am, may God so keep me.
