 About Pilgrim Witnesses

Welcome to Pilgrim Witnesses! My wife Catherine and I met in Taize, France many years ago. During one trip there, through a series of coincidental events, we discovered the amazing true story of Joan of Arc, and have since found her an especially powerful witness to God, as He is revealed in the Bible. Did you know:

- At 17 years old, she remains the youngest supreme military commander in history, male or female. Louis Kossuth says: Consider this unique and imposing distinction. Since the writing of human history began, Joan of Arc is the only person, of either sex, who has ever held supreme command of the military forces of a nation at the age of seventeen. Mr. Kossuth (1802-1894) was Regent-President of Hungary in 1849, a freedom fighter and bellwether of democracy in Europe.

- She is the most attested person in history up to the 16th century. As Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (author of Sherlock Holmes) states, next to the Christ, the highest spiritual being of whom we have any exact record upon this earth is the girl Jeanne.

- Her very specific and consistently fulfilled prophecies were famous even in her own time. I told them things that have happened, and things that shall happen yet. Joan of Arc, Trial of Condemnation, March 3, 1431 Mark Twain said, There have been many uninspired prophets, but she was the only one who ever ventured the daring detail of naming, along with a foretold event, the event's precise nature, the special time-limit within which it would occur, and the place?and scored fulfillment. Mark Twain, Joan of Arc-An Essay, 1896.

Jeane Dixon was one of the best-known American astrologers and psychics of the 20th century. However her 50% success rate of fulfilled prophecy pales when compared with Joan's 100%.

- There are many parallels and similarities with the saints/prophets of the Bible.

- The church burned her at the stake as a witch on May 30, 1431. Then, officially recognizing their mistake nearly 500 years later, she was canonized a saint on May16, 1920. She is now France's Patron saint and her legacy to both France and the world run deep.

Her story attracts many different kinds of people, for different reasons, including: Catholics, Protestants, New Age people, agnostics, feminists, military people, history buffs and more. Fifteen years ago, we began leading Joan of Arc pilgrimages to France, staying mostly in monasteries. We have since put out CDs, DVDs, calendars, books, and more.

Thank you for visiting.
