The purpose of the three steps of RoyaumeFrance is to inspire souls to seek, grow, and persevere in sanctifying grace in order to attain Heaven. This means that we predispose ourselves to (seek), inflame our hearts in charity with (love), and strengthen ourselves in (defend), that grace and the Faith that offers us that grace. This Faith and that sanctifying grace required to enter Heaven can be found only in their fullness through the Holy Catholic Church which is the seed of the Kingdom of God on earth and the only Church Christ founded for His mission of redeeming and saving us.
One of the great tragedies in our modern era, filled with so many false teachings and false sects in the name of Christ, is that people no longer understand the need to be intrinsically justified in sanctifying grace through the fullness of the Christian faith in the Holy Catholic Church in order to be saved and go to Heaven. Due to the diabolical revolutionary influence of the Kingdom of Hell in the hearts and minds of those who belong to the Kingdom of Heaven, many wrongly believe that all they need to do to enter the Kingdom of Heaven is to “accept who they are” in order to feel better about themselves and to “be accepted for who they are” by others, including the Church.
On the surface, that sounds fine, as all of us are sinners and the Church does, in fact, welcome all, no matter what kind of life they have lived. God does indeed love all people “just as they are.” We do not earn His love; it is freely given. However, God does not accept our sinful and wayward ways “just as they are.” That is the catch. “Know you not that the unjust shall not possess the kingdom of God? Do not err: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, Nor the effeminate, nor liers with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor railers, nor extortioners, shall possess the kingdom of God.” (I Corinthians 6:9-10) Thus, we will not enter the gates of paradise by being comfortable with “who we are” in our sinfulness. We will enter Heaven only by becoming “who we are meant to be” through sanctifying grace.
RoyaumeFrance’s mission is to inspire souls to seek, grow, and persevere in that grace. “For every one that asketh, receiveth: and he that seeketh, findeth: and to him that knocketh, it shall be opened.” (Matthew 7:8) However, we need to ask. We need to seek. We need to knock. Le Royaume wants to inspire you to do that.
Therefore, the first step to obtaining the Kingdom of God is to actually seek and desire it, that is, to be ready to repent and reform. Stop wasting your energy by demanding that God conform Himself to your sinful ways. Conform yourself to God’s ways if you seek Life and Life Eternal. Seek the Kingdom is about leveraging the truth, beauty, and goodness (Vérité, Beauté, Bonté) of Traditional French Catholicism in order to inspire this repentance. RoyaumeFrance offers this as a potential source of inspiration to increase your desire to repent and make a dogmatic confession of Catholic faith in order to receive the wedding attire required for the Kingdom, which is sanctifying grace. Seek the Kingdom is the foundation for RoyaumeFrance.com.
In sanctifying grace, we come to “seek first” the Kingdom of God. All else pales in comparison. The things of this earth become as nothing as our hearts are now with Our Savior Jesus Christ and the wholeness of the Trinity in Heaven through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Here is where our hearts are inflamed with Hope. Loving the Kingdom through the beautiful combined spirituality of the co-patronesses of France, Ste. Jehanne d’Arc and Ste. Thérèse de l’Enfant Jésus, is a step aimed at inspiring this ardent Hope in union with the Faith received in the first.
Finally, we must persevere to the end as our Savior Himself warned, “But he that shall persevere to the end, he shall be saved.” (Matthew 24:13) It is our glory to unite ourselves with the suffering of Christ, to “now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up those things that are wanting of the sufferings of Christ, in my flesh, for his body, which is the church.” (Colossians 1:24) by participating with Him in the great battle. We must persevere to the end because we are called magnificently and stunningly to participate in His redemptive work “on earth as is in Heaven.” We realize that this grace to be justified and redemptively suffer with Him makes us “co-heirs” and “adopted sons” of the Father with Christ! We become true couterrrevolutionaries in the face of the evil revolution against God. RoyaumeFrance offers Defend the Kingdom as a beautiful pedagogy in traditional French Catholicism to inspire this counterrevolutionary desire.
Any doubt now that you would want to begin your journey with Ste. Jehanne and Ste. Thérèse on the Trail of the Dogmatic Creed to the center of the Immaculate Heart of Mary where Christ reigns in all His glory?
Forget about trying to get the Church to accept your sins because that is “who you are.” Keep in mind that St. Paul described exactly “who we are,” “For all have sinned, and do need the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23) So, “who we are” is not who we want to be. Follow the Trail of the Dogmatic Creed with our saintly sisters and let the Dogmas and Creeds of the Church intrinsically justify you that you might become “who you truly are in the mind of God,” which is an adopted son or daughter with Jesus Christ!
