Ste. Jeanne d’Arc prepares for the Battle of Les Tourelles


I hope you enjoy this new video celebrating Ste Jeanne’s preparation for the Battle of Orléans, rather, for the Battle of Les Tourelles specifically. This movie with LeeLee Sobieski does a fine job (movie-wise) of presenting the moments before Les Tourelles.

The English have rejected her letter ordering them to leave. They are in a defiant defensive posture now while sending for reinforcements (which are, in fact, already on the way). Jeanne knows that she must act now to deliver the decisive blow to the English.


About Walter Adams

Professionally, I am an educator and experienced business executive. Academically, I hold an A.B. in Economics from Princeton University and a Masters Degree in Public and Private Management from Yale University. Raised as a Methodist, I joined the Catholic Church on Easter of 1985, just prior to marrying my wife of nearly 30 years. My Catholic spirituality is grounded in the sacraments, Eucharistic adoration, and True Devotion to Mary. I am influenced more specifically by the combined spirituality of Ste. Jehanne d'Arc and Ste. Thérèse de l'Enfant Jésus. I interpret Jehanne d'Arc through the spirituality of Thérèse, notably as represented through her plays and poetry about Jehanne. My ardent devotion to Ste. Jehanne d'Arc inspires me to seek her world view for my own. In order to do that I desire an authentic interpretation of the enigmatic saint. I believe Ste. Thérèse to be the most authentic interpreter of Ste. Jehanne's soul. My mission is to facilitate the coming of the Father’s Kingdom “on earth as it is in Heaven” by inspiring others to “seek first the Kingdom” through a repentant, dogmatic confession of Catholic faith and through exemplary Catholic ideals. Ste. Jehanne d'Arc and Ste. Thérèse de l'Enfant Jésus are representative, in my humble view, of some of the highest and most noble of those ideals.
