Even the Little Flower was a Crusader!

(St. Therese as St. Joan of Arc in a play in her Carmel.  Her habit was dressed up and the wig covered her veil.)

“To be Thy spouse, O my Jesus, to be a daughter of Carmel, and by my union with Thee to be the mother of souls, should not all this content me?
Yet other vocations make themselves felt, and I would wield the sword, I would be a Priest, an Apostle, a Martyr, a Doctor of the Church, I would fain accomplish the most heroic deeds — the spirit of the Crusader burns within me, and I would gladly die on the battlefield in defense of the Church.”
– St. Therese of Lisieux
