May 21st, 1920.
A GREAT deal of controversy has surged round the Maid of Domremy; indeed there can be few among our readers who do not remember that at school to be a partisan of Joan was to be accounted unpatriotic — only slightly less offensive than pro Boer. But her name now stands in the Kalendar of the Western Church. If we have a regret it is that the English Church and nation could not somehow have contrived to make the amende honorable, and have joined with the rest of Europe in celebrating the consummation of the movement begun so obscurely but with such boldness fifty years ago. But that was not to be: we in England are inarticulate in such matters. Unofficially, however, there are few among us who did not share in the rejoicings of Sunday last. Londoners certainly played their part in doing honour to the Maid of France.
