 This cute little girl is a native of Domrémy-la-Pucelle, Joan of Arc’s hometown. During their official Joan of Arc festival, celebrated the 2nd week of May, all the young girls of the village are dressed in this traditional medieval garb as a reminder of how Joan would dress for Sundays and the liturgical holidays during the summertime. Today these little girls are appropriately referred to as “Jeannettes”, after Joan of Arc. Here in the states however, we would know them as Brownies.)

"She was good and simple, and went often to the churches and holy shrines. When she was in the fields, she used to drop to her knees and pray every time she heard the church bells toll ... and she often went on pilgrimage to Notre Dame de Bermont carrying candles ..."
