St. Joan of Arc is dressed in golden armor holding sword. She rallied the French troops against the British near the end of the Hundred Years’ War. She was captured, tried, and burned at the stake by a court of pro-British and Burgundian clerics. Later, she was re-tried by Pope Callixtus III, who found the trial illegal and declared her innocent of heresy. She is one of nine secondary patron saints of France, and is patroness particularly of military personnel (especially women), martyrs, captives, and those who are ridiculed for their faith. Her feast day is May 30.
