(from La Pieta on Tripod.com http://lapieta.tripod.com/joanarc.htm: I rewrote certain parts of the prayer)

St. Jeanne D’Arc, Holy Maiden of Orléans, in the face of thy enemies, in the face of harassment, ridicule, and doubt, in abandonment, alone and without friends, and even in the face of thy own mortality, thou held firm in the Faith.  I pray that I may be as bold in the Faith as thee, St. Jeanne.  I beseech thee that thou wilt ride alongside me in my own battles.  Help me be mindful that what is worthwhile can be won when I persist.  Help me to believe more deeply, to hold firm in the Faith, to be strong in virtue, love, and humility, and to be a true counterrevolutionary for the King and Queen of Heaven.  Amen.
