The French Catholic Diaspora: The Mystical Kingdom of Catholic France

Royaume France VBB

The reason I am Catholic is simple. Only Catholicism will give me what I love and desire. Only Catholicism will fulfill my heart’s longing. Only Catholicism is capable of making me into the person that I know I am in the mind of God.

My work is nothing less than a journey with Ste. Jehanne d’Arc and Ste. Thérèse de l’Enfant Jésus along the Trail of the Dogmatic Creed of the Catholic Church. This Trail runs through the fields and meadows, over the hills and snow-capped mountains, and across the streams and rivers in the Immaculate Heart of Mary to the mystical Kingdom of Catholic France in the Heavenly Kingdom of God. I journey toward that Kingdom by striving to embody the prayer of the Our Father to bring His Will and Kingdom “on earth as it is in Heaven.”

This is a pilgrim’s journey, and one that I do not mind walking alone; though, I enjoy the company of those who likewise are called to this Kingdom. I simply make my way and welcome those who wish to join. I work by a “gather or disperse” philosophy. Join me if you wish. Disperse if you wish. I am here to inform, not debate.

My Catholic spirituality is grounded in the sacraments, Eucharistic adoration, and True Devotion to Mary. I am influenced more specifically by the combined spirituality of Ste. Jehanne d’Arc and Ste. Thérèse de l’Enfant Jésus. I interpret Jehanne d’Arc through the spirituality of Thérèse, notably as represented through her plays and poetry about Jehanne.

My ardent devotion to Ste. Jehanne d’Arc inspires me to seek her world view for my own. In order to do that I desire an authentic interpretation of the enigmatic saint. I believe Ste. Thérèse to be the most authentic interpreter of Ste. Jehanne’s soul.

My mission is to facilitate the coming of the Father’s Kingdom “on earth as it is in Heaven” by inspiring others to “seek first the Kingdom” through a repentant, dogmatic confession of Catholic faith and through exemplary Catholic ideals.

Ste. Jehanne d’Arc and Ste. Thérèse de l’Enfant Jésus are representative, in my humble view, of some of the highest and most noble of those ideals.

I am a missionary for a Kingdom many thought to be lost, commissioned by a Queen many never knew existed. My commission is to seek the spiritual diaspora of Catholic and Royal France and to restore the influence of Catholic and Royal France in America. I hold an undergraduate degree in Economics from Princeton University and a Master’s Degree in Public and Private Management from Yale University. I am married and the father of one child. Though raised a Methodist in the Bible Belt and surrounded with evangelicalism as a youth, I converted to the Catholic Church prior to my marriage in 1985. Touched deeply by the life of St. Thérèse of Lisieux and imbued with a filial love for Mary, I set out on a life-long spiritual journey to "seek first" Christ's Kingdom with Thérèse as my guide. Eventually led to confront my inner most being on that lonely, mystical hill of Calvary, I discovered through Mary's maternal guidance and Thérèse's sisterly care that Jesus had called another mighty saint to walk with me and to protect me through that dark and awful night of self-confrontation that leads us in Christ to true freedom. That saint, a spiritual sister to Thérèse, was Joan of Arc. ~ Walter Adams
