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

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

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

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

Reasoning through Empathic Devotion to St. Joan of Arc

“I tried to affirm my faith through reason. I believed but needed to prove this belief to be reasonable using deductive logic based on known premises.” ~ Royaume France This is a nuanced statement. I do not mean that faith and reason are incompatible. They are compatible and cannot be otherwise. In fact, that is… Continue reading Reasoning through Empathic Devotion to St. Joan of Arc

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

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
