Empathic devotion to St. Joan and St. Thérèse

We walk the same path but experience things differently. We observe different things and form different judgements. This is experiencing the objective (path) in a subjective manner (our own judgements and viewpoints as we walk the path with others).

In the science of Royaume France, we seek not our own point of view, but that of St. Joan and St. Thérèse. We seek to know the path as they know it and to understand their point of view from “grounds to conclusions” as formulated by Edith Stein. She calls this “empathy.” We extend this concept to our devotion to these two saintly sisters calling it “empathic devotion.”

Empathic devotion to St. Joan and St. Thérèse presupposes a heart of goodwill. We first must desire to learn their ways. Our hearts lead and our intellects follow, seeking to understand that which we desire, which is the heart of St. Joan of Arc and the mystical Kingdom of Our Lady’s Catholic and Royal France as interpreted by St. Thérèse.
