Joan’s story

Chat It's Fate - - Spirit Communication -

Per­haps the most fa­mous per­son to have been guided by a mys­te­ri­ous voice is Joan of Arc. The French farm girl was 13 when she first heard her ‘ coun­sel’ in 1425, in her fa­ther’s gar­den, where the voice was ac­com­pa­nied by a blaz­ing white light. She was afraid at first, but the more she heard the voices, the more she trusted them. A de­vout Catholic, she be­lieved them to be the voices of saints and an­gels. In 1428, the voices told her to visit the French king’s son, the Dauphin, and tell him she’d defeat the English if he let her com­mand his army. Al­most un­be­liev­ably, this came to pass, and this teenage girl de­feated the English at Or­leans. How­ever, she was cap­tured by the English and ex­e­cuted in 1431.
