The drop menu above will take the reader to pages outlining the reconciliation of Royaume France with one of its key inspirations, Légitimité.
“…in fixing the genus of a thing, we subsume it under a higher universal, of which it is a species.” ~ Wikipedia
Légimité in our sense is the spiritual and philosophical genus we call Royaume France and below which the more specific Le Royaume, the Kingdom Blessed of St. Joan and St. Thérèse, is subsumed as a species. Légitimité in our definition of Royaume France is the spirit of St. Mary Magdalene who carried the contemplative spirituality of the apostolic age from the foot of the cross to what we know today as France. Through Mary Magdalene, Our Lord consecrated what would become France to the Immaculate Heart of Mary through the Magdalene’s life of contemplation in Provence. “Légitimite Royaume France,” therefore, provides the higher form through which the lower form of Le Royaume branches out. French Légitimité in our model is a form in potency of the divine order of Truth, Beauty, and Goodness in the mind of God which acts in time and space as the eternal Kingdom of Catholic and Royal France in the center of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and which speciates here as Joan and Thérèse’s Le Royaume. The latter is my rule of life and summation of devotion to St. Joan and St. Thérèse and the subject matter of this site. Légitimite Royaume France drives my devotion to these saintly sisters, and my devotion to them, in turn, reflects the former.
Royaume France and Le Royaume developed independently of the French Catholic Légitimiste movement; however, we quickly and comfortably began to shadow the Légitimistes and saw in its substance the same spirit. The ongoing reconciliation reflected here is an attempt to demonstrate the congruity and spiritual brotherhood between the two.
