TFP Louisiana Commemorates Centenary of Saint Joan of Arc’s Canonization at New Orleans Event

June 8, 2020

Catholic youth were also present

On May 30, 2020, members of Tradition, Family and Property—Louisiana hosted their annual commemoration of the feast day of Saint Joan of Arc at her monument in New Orleans, Louisiana.  This year was extraordinary because it marked the hundredth anniversary of her canonization. Her gilded equestrian monument stands in the French quarter as a model of purity amid the sin and vice for which the neighborhood is known.

TFP—Louisiana has held this event ever since the monument was vandalized in 2017. The event consists of the Holy Rosary, the Litany of St. Joan of Arc and the singing of a hymn titled “Pure Maid of France.”  While most of this year’s thirty attendees were from the New Orleans area, some came from as far as Kansas for the centenary celebration.

The peaceful prayer rally contrasted greatly with the moral indifference of the tourists visiting the French Quarter. However, some passing tourists took pictures of the spectacle, while some even stopped and prayed, even if only for a few minutes.

In this present time of crisis, may Saint Joan of Arc intercede for the nation so that a culture of purity and order might one day be established in America.

Saint Joan of Arc, pray for us!
