St. Joan and St.Thérèse



Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus had great devotion to St. Jeanne d'Arc. Here are the verses which she wrote and dramatized in honor of the Maid of Lorraine, with herself dressed as Jeanne. St.Thérèse wrote:
Thy Church, O conquering God! through all the earth,
Begs Thee to crown with the saint's royal crown,

A virgin, martyr, warrior, whose true worth

In heaven's high courts e'en now hath won renown.

Our tumults calm;

Her cause advance!

The halo and the palm

Give unto Jeanne of France!

Let me know what you think about the picture with the crosses in her eyes. It is pretty amazing.

Blessings!
