It was during the summer of when St Michael began appearing to Joan, eventually informing her that God had an important mission for her to accomplish. He told her that Saint Margaret and Saint Catherine would soon appear to her. The apparitions of these saints were so real that St Joan of Arc could touch them, and she often listened to their instructions while hugging them about their legs.
After instructing Joan the Maid for three years, they revealed to her the mission for which God had chosen her. She was responsible to see that the Dauphin was crowned King of France!
Like Judith, who beheaded Halofernes of the Assyrians, God had chosen a weak and humble woman to shame the strong and save her nation. St Joan of Arc was told to go to the knight Robert de Baudricourt, and ask him to officially send her to the Dauphin. Baudricourt listened to her request, but sent St Joan away, adding that her father should box her ears.
The next year, , at the insistence of her guides, St Joan of Arc went back to Vaucouleurs, and again Baudricourt turned her down flat.
One of his knights, however, Jean de Metz, listened to her when she explained why she had come back. Nonetheless, before mid-Lent, I must go to the king, even if I have to walk my feet off to my knees. They gave her the task of saving France from the English oppressor.
This was no mean task, to say the least. The whole of Northern France and the western region of Aquitaine were in English hands. Her God-ordained mission began in Nevertheless, Joan was subjected to an ecclesiastical tribunal. First, she needed to prove that it was indeed God who had sent her. Second, the clerics had to make sure that she was a virgin and not possessed by the devil. She satisfied the tribunal on both counts. If You Leave Live. Joan of Arc Live.

Charles was at first unsure of whether to admit her but, after a couple of days, he did.

I may have to pick this one for the fans, but to me "The Misunderstanding" is my favorite song off their second CD.
I love this song. It would be nice to substitute. Dazzle Ships has the obvious "Telegraph", and " Genetic Engineering favorite song, standing above collection ", two obvious choices and I would also pick "Radio Waves".
All the true pop songs from this under rated CD. Off Junk Culture I would go in the opposite direction.
I would leave it at that because the other favorite is "Never Turn Away", and to me it is too slow to include here. Crush is tough. I would pick these and "So In love". It is a brilliant pop song and does fit here.
I would not pick "Secret" because to me it is too much like so in love. There are also some other favorites I would pass on here. Since "If You Leave" is their only real hit that has to be included. Finally some B-Sides should be included that may be hidden gems.View credits, reviews, tracks and shop for the Vinyl release of Maid Of Orleans on Discogs.
