Prayer to St. Joan of Arc for Our Nation Print E-mail
By Fr. J. M. Logan   
Monday, 05 November 2012

Dear St. Joan of Arc, you who led the armies of France to victory when called by God to save your land from the domination of foreign aggressors, we call upon you now that the courage and strength you showed in rallying the French troops may inspire courage and strength in the people of the United States to oppose all attempts by our govern-ment to undermine our democracy and erode our liberties as a free people.

Please for our sake invoke the assistance of the holy ones whom God sent to call you to action: St. Margaret, St. Catherine and the Archangel St. Michael. With your intercession and the prayers of these saints, may the Holy Spirit pour forth on our people the gift of wisdom and knowledge of the truth, that we will be given light to vote in the coming election only for those who will serve the sacred cause of life, freedom of conscience and deliverance of our country from the prevailing forces of death, darkness and lies.

We thank you for hearing our prayer and beg you to inspire us to be warriors in the defense of life, light and justice as the Spirit of God inspired you so long ago.

St. Joan of Arc, defend us!
St. Joan of Arc, pray for us!
St. Joan of Arc, lead us to victory!

Amen.
