Meditation on the Royal Heart

The Royal Heart is one that is born not of earth but of the Heavenly Kingdom. We are unable to explain to others our devotion to the Monarchy without revealing a few of the sacred rooms in the castle of our soul. For, devotion to the Monarchy is much more than a devotion to an earthly socio-political model, it is an outpouring of our love for the true Form of the Kingdom of Heaven with its Divine Order beginning with Jesus Christ as King of all Kings and cascading downward, in a Divine Aristocracy, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary with the rest of the communion of saints.

The Royal Heart seeks this Kingdom along the Divine Trail of the Dogmatic Creed, which is the only path leading to the eternal Kingdom. We seek it with the assistance of our saintly sisters, Joan of Arc and Thérèse of Lisieux, who keep us focused on our goal and out of danger as we cross narrow bridges over deep canyons, traipse the steep, dangerous, but truly edifying rocky paths over the snow packed mountains, and cross slippery, rushing streams running through the pristine meadows leading to the Kingdom of God.

The Royal Heart eschews and shrinks away from the whispers of the Evil Distractor hiding in the Dark Forest, who seeks to taunt us into abandoning the Trail of the Dogmatic Creed for a wide paved highway where we will have an alleged “freedom” to choose our own way over that given to us by God. The Royal Heart understands instinctively and intuitively that we are truly free to make our way to the Kingdom only by staying obedient to the boundaries of the Trail of the Dogmatic Creed. We are truly free only by following that way by which God instructs us.

“You are free to eat of all the trees in the garden. But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you are not to eat, for, the day you eat of that, you are doomed to die.” ~ Gen 2:16-17.

The Royal Heart, through sanctifying grace, arrives to our destination in a union of spirit with God and the communion of saints by the prayer Our Lord taught us: “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven.” His Kingdom is not of this world, but He desires that we make it present in this world for the salvation of souls. The Monarchy best reflects the order of the Kingdom of Heaven; therefore, the Royal Heart seeks the Monarchy in order to facilitate the coming of His Kingdom.

The Royal Heart, therefore, is fundamentally religious and spiritual and is imbued throughout the substance of the soul with sanctifying grace. It is a yearning for the Kingdom of God and a desire to manifest that Kingdom on earth for the well-being of society and the salvation of mankind.

The Royal Heart reflects the most beautiful color in the Heavens, which is the combined spirituality of St. Joan of Arc and St. Thérèse, by exposing itself to the sunlight of Christ, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and in the care of these Heavenly sisters. By reflecting this celestial light, we hope to transform the Church and the world for our Queen, the Blessed Virgin Mary, and our King, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Blessed Virgin Mary, with St. Joan of Arc, St. Thérèse of Lisieux, and St. Clotilda, the spiritual mother of Christendom and of France, pray for us!
