Favorite thing: On the 8th of May, 1429, the English troops having fled, the holy Maid comes to this very Cathedral of the Holy Cross, and kneels here in prayer, during a solemn service of Thanksgiving for the happy end of the long seige.
Every year, on that date, this City lovingly keeps the anniversary of that occasion, as a token of gratitude towards Joan, a poor girl who could neither read nor write, but lived in a close union with God.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
