Starting from this end of 2022, the intercession novena prayer “Jeanne 2031” will be extended until the celebration of the sixth centenary of the saint’s death, in 2031.
An initiative of prayer and religious formation under the aegis of St. Joan of Arc has just been initiated in France, with the aim of making it recover its original vocation as the “Eldest Daughter of the Church” and leading the rest of the world in a renewal of faith.
In a country that has been secularized to the extreme and is losing its deep historic identity, where anti-Christian acts are multiplying at the same rate as laws contrary to protection of life, nothing less than the intercession of the Maid of Orleans was needed to inspire a renewal of the Catholic faith in her native country. It is this conviction that inspired Catholic philosopher Thibaud Collin the idea of a novena of prayer that will not only be spread over nine days as is customary, but also over the nine years that will lead to the celebration of the sixth centenary of the famous saint’s death, in 2031.
Open to the whole community of believers throughout the world, the novena consists of a daily prayer intended to help each faithful put one’s heart and soul in tune with the virtues of St. Joan of Arc and thus meet the new challenges of our time.
A monthly newsletter will also be sent to all the website’s subscribers with inspiring texts, meditation proposals, and concrete spiritual challenges to accompany the prayers, along with pilgrimage offers, fasting programs, online conferences.
