Royaume France is a reflection on my life-story as revealed to me through the stories of St. Joan and St. Thérèse. Stories "about" them became stories lived "with" them in a transcendent communion of friendship. I discovered them to be my saintly, celestial sisters guiding me along a pathway softly lit in the dark night of faith. I came to understand who I am through their combined hearts. Royaume France is an account of this joyful, though at times arduous, journey. The reader will find here a guideline, roughly organized, which will require their own effort at harmonizing the principles revealed to them by these same saintly sisters, Joan and Thérèse.
I am a business and educational professional with an undergraduate degree in Economics from Princeton University and a masters degree in Public and Private Management from Yale University. I am married and the father of one child. 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.
STE. JEANNE D'ARC
Led to confront my inner most being on that lonely, mystical hill of Calvary, I discovered that Jesus had called another mighty saint to walk with 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.
I am spiritually French, American by birth. I am devoted to true Catholic and Royal France through the saintly inspiration and sisterly care of St. Joan of Arc and St. Thérèse of Lisieux.
Devotion to the Monarchy, especially the French Catholic Monarchy, is an expression of my Jehannian and Thérèsian spirituality, even more than of my socio-political positions.
