SAINT JOAN OF ARC
SOLDIER – VIRGIN – MYSTIC
NOW AVAILABLE ON DVD
We are delighted to have finished our film – ST. JOAN OF ARC – and are now offering this 45 minute presentation on DVD in which to meditate upon and encounter one of our great Catholic Saints. The film is suitable for all ages and draws us into the spirituality and prayerfulness of Saint Joan’s unique mission.
Despite having lived over 500 years ago, this French Catholic girl’s life continually fascinates us. Remembered for her military feats, Saint Joan had a great love for the Sacraments and for purity, a mystical mission, a unique calling and a terrible death, burned at the stake after a politically-motivated trial.
Devotion to Saint Joan of Arc became especially strong and widespread in 19th-century France and later among French soldiers during World War I. Saint Therese of Lisieux wrote a prayer and a play about Saint Joan (which we look at in this film) and portrayed Saint Joan at Carmel. Saint Joan of Arc was canonized in 1920 and continues to be loved and honoured throughout the world today.
Our new film ‘Saint Joan of Arc’ runs for 45 minutes and is available worldwide in all region formats. BUY NOW for Christmas. We are still shipping to the USA.
“Joan of Arc is like a shooting star across the landscape of French and English history, amid the stories of the Church’s saints and into our consciousness. Women identify with her; men admire her courage. She challenges us in fundamental ways. Her issues of mysticism, calling, identity, trust and betrayal, conflict and focus are our issues still.” (Joan of Arc: God’s Warrior, by Barbara Beckwith)
