From the testimony of Jean Pasquerel on May 4, 1456 ("...Jehanne,
as she predicted, was struck
by an arrow above the breast, and when she felt herself wounded,
she was afraid and wept, and was consoled, as she said." [the latter
statement alludes to the fact that, as she herself said during her
testimony, she was consoled by St. Catherine after being wounded. See
excerpt below, at the bottom of this page].
For the quoted portion of this testimony as it appears in the original, see DuParc's "Procès en Nullité...", Vol I, p. 395.
For translations, see Oursel's "Les Procès de Jeanne d'Arc", p. 295, and Pernoud's "The Retrial of Joan of Arc", p. 166.
During her trial (testimony on February 27, 1431) she said she
was comforted by St. Catherine
after being wounded: "...she was wounded in the neck by an arrow or
crossbow bolt, but she had great comfort from St. Catherine, and
was well within sixteen days..."
In MS 1119, the relevant passage occurs on folio 20r, lines 22 - 23 (see "Procès de Condamnation...", folio 14v).

Barrett's "The Trial of Jeanne d'Arc", p 65 [note: this one reads 'St. Margaret' rather than 'St. Catherine'];
