Joan of Arc – Forevermore to Dream, in the words of St. Thérèse

I continue to peruse the library of YouTube videos I have created over the years. This one has over eight thousand views. It is a poem of St. Thérèse about Joan of Arc. Thérèse is quoted as saying that the knowledge of Joan was one of the greatest graces of her life. She wrote what… Continue reading Joan of Arc – Forevermore to Dream, in the words of St. Thérèse

Joan of Arc’s execution and canonization

I was refreshing my YouTube page and thought I would post some of my more popular videos. This one has over 23k views. The last part shows actual photos of Joan's canonization in Rome. It took a while to get her canonized despite the universal recognition of her sanctity. The English were not keen on… Continue reading Joan of Arc’s execution and canonization

Joan of Arc

Joan of Arc’s last hours before execution

Here is another of my videos. This one with over 1200 views. If I could explain what we see here, I would. No one can; though, thousands have tried. The answers range from the superficial to the deeply thoughtful, but all remain insufficient. I recall the number of books written on Joan as being upwards… Continue reading Joan of Arc’s last hours before execution

Joan of Arc, The French Catholic Diaspora

Jeanne d’Arc “forges lentement en nos coeurs tous ces éléments rivaux ”

C'est arrivé quand je lisait le livre “La Pucelle de France : Histoire de la vie et de la mort de Jeanne d'Arc.” J’ai été supris par l’analogie de France au temps de Jeanne, sa method de victoire, et le voyage de nos coeurs. Jeanne nous aide dans notre propre voyage de la même manière.… Continue reading Jeanne d’Arc “forges lentement en nos coeurs tous ces éléments rivaux ”

The French Catholic Diaspora

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

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

St. Thérèse’s interpretation of Joan of Arc is the essence of our devotion to St. Joan

The knowledge of God is revealed in Royaume France through the spiritual genus of St. Mary Magdalene’s House of New Bethany, which is the mystical Kingdom of Our Lady’s Catholic and Royal France, along with the more specific species of the Kingdom blessed of St. Joan and St. Thérèse. This is Edith Stein’s phenomenology through… Continue reading St. Thérèse’s interpretation of Joan of Arc is the essence of our devotion to St. Joan

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… Continue reading Empathic devotion to St. Joan and St. Thérèse

How we are spiritually formed in the Kingdom blessed of St. Joan and St. Thérèse

I had a breakthrough in the systematic modeling of Royaume France. The breakthrough came through a meditative reflection on the chapters, The Science of Royaume France, and The knowledge of God. Three key material causes of our formation in the Kingdom blessed of St. Joan and St. Thérèse came into sharp focus. These are the… Continue reading How we are spiritually formed in the Kingdom blessed of St. Joan and St. Thérèse
