Le Royaume is an expression of Platonic Ultra-Realism elevated by divine grace through the Immaculate Heart of Mary to the Holy Realism of St. John of the Cross, St. Thérèse of Lisieux, and St. Joan of Arc. It is not a concept originating in the human intellect. Le Royaume is a shadow of heavenly reality that exists as Truth and a Form in the mind of God (I Cor. 13:12) . Le Royaume is the Blessed Virgin Mary’s Kingdom of Catholic France imbued in the beautiful color of the combined spirituality of St. Joan of Arc and St. Thérèse of Lisieux. It is representative of a heavenly family, a tabernacle of familial relations in the Kingdom of God.
“The eternal Feast of Tabernacles will be a Great Homecoming when it is celebrated in heaven, but not everyone will make the reunion. Unless family members are united in Christ, only their bodies are related. Earthly families being at best very imperfect figures of the heavenly, it is next to impossible to identify the real relatives here below.” (Beyond Politics by Solange Hertz)
Thus, our first concern is that of finding people of goodwill. Our efforts are not aimed primarily at trying to convince others through a rational, systematic derivation of spiritual and theological concepts; rather, it is simply to present this Heavenly Tabernacle to those who are predestined to receive it through the goodness of their will and who, now believing, will seek to understand it in their rational intellect. We are presenting Le Royaume to those who “believe so that they might understand” (re: St. Anselm and St. Augustine) as opposed to those who must understand before they believe.
If holy desire impels you to love this heavenly home, you are likely part of this eternal Heavenly family making up one of the “many mansions in the Father’s house” (Jn 14:2-3).
The manifestation of Le Royaume in our hearts is divided into three components, those to which we refer as the “spiritual programs“:
- Seek the Kingdom through True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary and Eucharistic adoration in order to open our hearts to the reception of sanctifying grace.
- Love the Kingdom through the Dove and Rose devotion to the combined hearts of St. Joan of Arc and St. Thérèse of Lisieux in order to grow in sanctifying grace and allow them to lead us to the mystical Kingdom of Catholic France.
- Defend the Kingdom through the Royal Hearts devotion in order to persevere in sanctifying grace through the counterrevolutionary spirituality of the Kingdom of Catholic France.
We seek this Kingdom “on earth as it is in Heaven.” Our desire for this Kingdom here below as it is above becomes our unyielding driving force, and this itself comes with consequences.
Devotion to the combined hearts of Sts. Joan of Arc and Thérèse of Lisieux becomes our life-giving guide out of the Dark Forest and toward the Kingdom of the Virgin Mary’s Catholic France on the Trail of the Dogmatic Creed. This becomes the manifestation of our specific form of True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary as prescribed by St. Louis de Montfort.
Royal Hearts becomes the passionate expression of our defense of the Kingdom. Royal Hearts is uncompromising. Through our Marian, Jehannian, and Thérèsian Royal Hearts of goodwill, we come to understand that the Kingdom of God through the Blessed Virgin Mary’s Kingdom of Catholic France, Le Royaume, is diametrically opposed to the Kingdom of Man with its Luciferian master. There can be no compromise with the spiritual, political, and cultural forces in conflict with the Kingdom and that seek the destruction of Christ’s Holy Catholic Church which is the seed of the Kingdom of God on earth.
Thus, a consequence of the Royal Heart of goodwill is the necessity for complete fidelity and intellectual integrity, even if that courageous honesty challenges some of our most cherished core values, established learning, and pre-conceived notions. Stated in the negative, the consequence of holding back an idol or two in our tabernacle (as did the Old Testament Jews in the desert) is the risk of losing our sanctifying grace and not persevering to the end (Mt. 24:13). The Royal Heart is intensely uncompromising no matter how obtuse we become with mainstream society as this is required to persevere and endure to the end. We are not of the Luciferian City of Man. We are of the Divine City of God.
The practical expression of Le Royaume in the world, then, is one of contemplation and doing the work of the Kingdom in Eucharistic Adoration through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Le Royaume does not have a formal organization. We simply are kindred souls adoring Christ through Mary’s Heart in union with the saints in Heaven and with each other, even if we never know one another on this earth.
If you are a person of goodwill and desire Le Royaume, then pursue its fulfillment with all your heart (Mt. 13: 31-32) and know that you are not alone as you adore Christ in His Eucharist and seek to fulfill His commandment to bring Our Lady’s Kingdom “on earth as it is in Heaven.” Know also that if we do persevere to the end, we will gather together one day as a family in our tabernacle for the great Feast of the Tabernacles that will never end (Hertz).
