Saint Joan of Arc displays a perfect example of what a woman ought to be in our modern times. So pure and chaste was Joan the Maid that numerous rough soldiers testified that in drawing near to her, all their carnal desires fled. They honored her more as a woman than a general...and would fight with her and for her unto death. Although, as leader of an army (by unique command of God) she had to dress in men's clothing, nevertheless this general of generals longed to return to her womanly garb and to shepherding the flocks of her father. Far from being a cause of temptation in the hearts and minds of the men around her, Joan desired to remain a humble and modest woman. Saint Joan of Arc, pray for us and enable us to return to dressing and acting like true and virtuous women whom men will honor and fight to defend.

Devotion to the Queen of Heaven, Virgin most Powerful (Virgo Potens), is the most sure means of acquiring the virtue of modesty and persevering in its practice. In these times of such brazen impiety, saturated with immodesty and impurity, she alone can help women to be and to remain tuly womanly, pure, and beautiful. May she who always dressed with quiet dignity and humble beauty, enable women to imitate her faithfully.
