Légitimité as the true defense from the Left

The Right cannot overcome the liberal Left. By virtue of its metaphysics, the Right will always drift under fire toward the Left. Whereas the metaphysics guiding the Left  (and drawing the Right to it) are wrong, those of the Right simply are vacuous.  Thus the Right is defenseless in the face of an onslaught from… Continue reading Légitimité as the true defense from the Left

Légitimité and the Royal Heart

My Royal Heart developed over the years in the shadow of the Légitimiste movement in France. Légitimité had a significant influence on me; though, my work for the Kingdom of France “on earth as it is in Heaven” through the Immaculate Heart of Mary developed independently. I believe that the resulting informal, synchronous relationship I… Continue reading Légitimité and the Royal Heart

Consécration of France to the Blessed Virgin Mary

Consécration of France to the Blessed Virgin Mary King Louis VIII and Queen Anne consecrated France to the Blessed Virgin Mary in 1638. France belongs to Mary both by divine providence from above (supramundanely) as the eldest daughter of the church and by royal decree from below (intramundanely). France’s entéléchie according to her natural affinity… Continue reading Consécration of France to the Blessed Virgin Mary

We are sanctified as part of a royal kingdom

We are part of an aristocratic, royal whole. Spirituality is not a radically individualistic affair. Just “Jesus and me” is truncated and far from the waters of life running through the kingdom. Even further, we need not simply a group of likeminded souls that we might call church. We need the church founded by Christ… Continue reading We are sanctified as part of a royal kingdom

Empathy, culture, and légitimité

Edith Stein’s work on empathy is complex and rigorous; however, one ray of common-man light shines forth. This is that we come to know ourselves in great part through empathy with others. Part of our self-knowledge is primordially interior, but part is empathic. We see ourselves, but also see ourselves through the eyes of others.… Continue reading Empathy, culture, and légitimité

Repentance and devotion to St. Joan of Arc

I have written extensively on the subject of empathic devotion to St. Joan of Arc. Our Lord and Our Lady have transformed my life through this uniquely powerful relationship. The Holy Spirit has willed to provide the sanctifying grace I need in hierarchical fashion, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary and then through St. Joan.… Continue reading Repentance and devotion to St. Joan of Arc

Royaume France

Royaume France, as a personal Marian, Magdalenian, Jehannian, Thérèsian devotion, confronts the ruling secular Hegelian zeitgeist at its roots. Our union of hearts through contemplation with St. Mary Magdalene at the foot of the Cross and on the shores of Provence, opens the gates of the eternal, unchanging heavens. We stand obtusely to the world,… Continue reading Royaume France

On Monarchy

To focus on the worth of the individual Monarch is Aristotelian. To focus on the worth of the Monarchy itself, no matter the acceptability of the steward, is Platonic. The Aristotelian will demand that only worthy men and women be allowed to rule, which, of course, leads ultimately to democracy and the Luciferian "will of… Continue reading On Monarchy

The Feast Day of St. Thérèse and the final stage of my life

Thirty-five years ago today, the Feast Day of St. Thérèse, I received the grace of the Great Event, my instantaneous conversion to the Church and the Eucharistic, through the heart of St. Thérèse. Thérèse has orchestrated and watched over each phase of my life from conversion, through the long, intense suffering of self-confrontation by Jesus… Continue reading The Feast Day of St. Thérèse and the final stage of my life
