but then shall 1 know even as also I am
And now abideth faith, hope, charity,
these three ; but the greatest of these is
charity. _
Ephcsians 6, v. 1—18.
Children, obey your parents in the Lord:
for this is right.
Honour thy father and mother; which is
the first commandment with promise ;
That it may be well with thee, and thou
mayest live long on the earth.
And, ye fathers, provoke not your chil-
dren to wrath : but bring them up in the
nurture and admonition of the Lord.
Servants, be obedient to them that are
your masters according to the flesh, with
fear and trembling, in singleness of your
heart, as unto Christ;
Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but
as the servants of Christ, doing the will of
God from the heart;
With good will doing service, as to the
Lord, and not to men:
Knowing that whatsoever good thing any
man doeth, the same shall he receive of
the Lord , whether he be bond or free.
And, ye masters, do the same things imto
them, forbearing threatening: knowing that
your Master also is in heaven; neither is
there respect of persons with him.
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the
Lord, and in the power of his might.
Put on the whole armour of God, that
ye may be able to stand against the wiles
of the devil.
For we wrestle not apinst flesh and
blood, but against principalities, against
powers, against the rulers of the darkness of
this world, against spiritual wickedness in
high places.
Wherefore take unto you the whole ar-
mour of God, that ye may be able to with-
stand in the evil day, and having done all,
to stand.
Stand therefore, having your loins girt
about with truth, and having on the breast-
plate of righteousness;
And your feet shod with the preparation
of the gospel of peace;
Above all, taking the shield of faith,
wherewith ye shall be able to quench all
the fiery darts of the wicked.
And take the helmet of salvation, and
the sword of the Spirit, which is the word
of God :
Praying always with all prayer and sup-
plication in the Spirit, and watching there-
unto with all perseverance and supplication
for all saints.
There lived in a village of the province
of Champagne a peasant named Jacques
d'Arc, who had several children, one of
whom, a daughter named Joan, was remark-
able for her piety and her serious turn of
mind. This maiden brooded over the mis-
fortunes of her king and country, till at
length she began to fancy that some of the
saints used to appear to her and to urge
her to undertake the deliverance of France
from the English. She addressed herself
to the lord of an adjacent town, praying
him to send her to the dauphin, as she was
destined to crown him. He laughed at her
pretensions, but he complied with her re-
quest. She appeared before the king in
man's attire, and assured him that she was
sent by Heaven to raise the siege of Or-
leans and conduct him to Rheims to be
crowned. It is said, that though she had
never before seen the king she recognised
him at once among his courtiers, that she
told him secrets known only to himself, and
described and claimed a sword which had
long lain forgotten in the church of St.
Catherine. She was examined by a coun-
cil of lawyers and divines, who pronounced
her to be inspired. She was then exhibited
to the people mounted on a stately grey
charger, which she managed with great dex-
terity, and preceded by a banner, on which
the Almighty was represented as a vene-
rable old man with a globe in his hand.
The Maid, as she was styled, soon after
headed a division of the French troops des-
tined to convey a supply of provisions to
Orleans, and she succeeded in entering the
town with her charge. The English soon
after raised the siege, and the Maid then
called on the king to proceed to Rheims
for his coronation. Though the whole of
the intermediate country was in the hands
of the English and Burgundians it was re-
solved to comply with her desire, and
Charles set forth with an escort of ten
thotisand horse. He reached Rheims in
safety, and was there anointed with the holy
oil which an angel, it was said, had brought
from heaven at the coronation of Clovis,
the founder of the monarchy. The Maid,
who stood, holding her banner, at his side,
then fell on her knees, and declaring her
mission ended, begged with tears to be dis-
missed. Unhappily for her, her presence
was still deemed to be of importance, and
the permission was refused.
Her good fortune had indeed deserted
her, and the next year she fell into the
hands of the English, being taken prisoner
