La réduction française philosophique de Ste. Jehanne d'Arc
La réduction française philosophique de Ste. Jehanne d'Arc is a transcendent, systematic model of the French royal hearts of St. Joan of Arc and St. Thérèse of Lisieux developed through the influence of the life of St. Joan of Arc, Thérèsian Carmelite spirituality, and the philosophical lens of Edith Stein (St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross). Its aim is Faith, Hope, and Love "on earth as it is in Heaven" through the majesty of French Catholic spirituality and True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary. Its means is personalized, phenomenological devotion to the combined hearts and spirituality of St. Joan of Arc and St. Thérèse of Lisieux.
Our Mission is the sanctification of souls through devotion to St. Joan of Arc, St. Thérèse of Lisieux , and the renaissance in our hearts of the Blessed Virgin Mary's Catholic and Royal France.
The sovereign establishment on earth as it is in Heaven of the Blessed Virgin Mary’s Kingdom of Catholic and Royal France bathed in the mystically beautiful light of the combined spirituality of Sts. Joan of Arc and Thérèse of Lisieux.
Royaume France's purpose is to inspire others to make a dogmatic confession of Catholic faith in the spirit of True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary as prescribed by St. Louis de Montfort. Our means of inspiring that confession of faith under the mantle of the Blessed Virgin is devotion to the eternal form of Our Lady's Catholic and Royal France under the patronage of St. Joan of Arc and St. Thérèse of Lisieux, the two co-secondary patronesses of France.
The Royaume France model, built through the phenomenological reduction of the combined hearts of St. Joan and St. Thérèse, is a transcendent form of traditional French Catholic spirituality designed to keep us on what I call "the Trail of the Dogmatic Creed with St. Joan and St. Thérèse" to the Kingdom of God. Without such a model, we likely will be swept away by the prevailing hurricane force winds of modern culture, philosophies, and disoriented spiritualities. Our goal is Heaven; our understanding of the only means to attain it is the Holy Catholic Church; our fundamental spirituality is devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary; and the manifestation of all this is what we call the "Royal Heart." The Royal Heart is foremost a spiritual orientation resulting from Royaume France which naturally leads to a Catholic worldview in cultural and political affairs.
Foundational to meriting the Royal Heart of St. Joan and St. Thérèse in the center of the Immaculate Heart of Mary is the rejection of the grave errors of modernity - it's ideologies, philosophical manifestations, cultural premises, and socio-political structures.
Royal Hearts are inherently, substantively opposed to modernity for the simple reason that we are for the Kingdom of God. In the temporal cultural world, we are different from "reactionaries" who simply "conserve" the present (thus, fancying themselves as "conservatives"). Royal Hearts have a positive understanding of the Kingdom of God as our model "on earth as it is in Heaven," however imperfectly we instantiate that Kingdom on this earth. Therefore, we oppose modernity with its progressive liberalism not because we are "reactionaries" who are "afraid of change," but because we are Catholic and Royal Hearts who are pointing to a superior model in the center of the Immaculate Heart of Mary where Jesus Christ reigns in all His glory. We are "for" the better manifestation. We "oppose" what draws us further from it, while supporting what moves us closer.
Thus, we often share immediate goals with reactionaries. It is not unusual that we oppose the same liberal evil. However, we are not reactionaries attempting to conserve the existing ways; we always are seeking movement toward the superior model, a very different and life-giving motive. The interests of reactionaries and royalists coincide but are grounded in different paradigms.
My goal as a Royal Heart, and as reflected in Royaume France, is the rejection of modernity for the glory of Mary and to help usher in the reign of her Immaculate Heart. This model is one that provides lasting spiritual support in that effort. Only those who "endure to the end" will be saved. To reject modernity for the sake of the Blessed Virgin Mary is to take a step away from the gates of Hades and toward the Kingdom of God.
This is Royaume France, the "form" of True Devotion to Mary instantiated in us that we call the "Royal Heart" of St. Joan of Arc and St. Thérèse of Lisieux.

In a single moment, a "divine glance," one day in October of 2008, Our Lord and Our Lady imbued my soul with a preeminent and life-long devotion to St. Joan of Arc. It was a thunderous spiritual moment that struck like a lightening bolt and with the same intensity that Joan displayed in her short life on earth. Already established decades before in total consecration to the Blessed Virgin Mary and St. Thérèse of Lisieux, I entered into a spiritual journey with Joan of Arc on what I call The Trail of the Dogmatic Creed to the mystical kingdom of the Blessed Virgin Mary's Catholic and Royal France. My books are testimonies to that journey and that Kingdom. My sites organize that content into a programmatic approach, the development of which serves as a translation of my subjective experience into an objectively-based system that can be followed by anyone of goodwill.
The true France of St. Joan of Arc is a Heavenly form in the center of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Royal and Catholic France as a Heavenly form was founded spiritually by St. Mary Magdalene on the shores of Provence where she brought the apostolic spirit from the foot of the cross and the tomb of the resurrected Christ to what later would be known as France. This was the Providential design bequeathed to France through St. Mary Magdalene and which later would be defended by St. Joan of Arc and spiritually renewed like roses from Heaven by St. Thérèse.
Royaume France is the the Kingdom Blessed of St. Joan and St. Thérèse; its spirituality is the combined hearts of St. Joan of Arc and St. Thérèse of Lisieux. Our community consists of those devoted to these two saintly sisters and their royal French hearts. We seek Our Lady's mystical Kingdom of Catholic and Royal France with them and in union with St. Mary Magdalene as our spiritual foundress. May the Father’s Kingdom come, his will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. May the reign of the Immaculate Heart of Mary be quickened through this devotion.
For those who feel called by Our Lady with St. Joan and St. Thérèse to explore and contemplate Royaume France, one might consider a 30 day plan. By following the pages in order and reading through all of the meditations, one will be led through in a step-by-step fashion.
The Prières and Méditations (prayers and meditations) page can be used either partially or in total each of the 30 days to open the heart of goodwill to Our Lady's influence.
