the story

St. Philomena and Edith Stein

When we speak of the glory of a saint, we are speaking objectively, not only in the person of the saint themselves but in the glory bestowed on them by God. According to Edith Stein's mentor Edmund Husserl, the father of modern day Phenomenology, objectivity is tied to logic and this applies not only to objects in themselves but also to the meaning associated with that object. What it logically means for a saint to be glorified through an act of God is just as objective as is the saint in their person. We might understand that glory and interpret its meaning from a subjective standpoint, but it remains objectively the same nevertheless. When that glory is manifested "on earth as it is in Heaven," that manifestation is an instantiation of the objective ideal. Manifestations may occur under many forms and be interpreted through various subjective perceptions; yet, the ideal remains the same.


What does this all mean with regard to Royaume France?


In my writings I have consistently and purposefully allowed a twenty-five year gap in my story. I have omitted the details of the most dark period in my life, a quarter century in duration, for the reason that telling these serve no purpose whatsoever. However, the logical meaning of this life struggle is important. It's objective "in itself" substance is very worthy of instantiating in the written word.


The gates of Hell did not prevail during this phase of my life. Exactly what events transpired are of no importance. However, that Hell did not prevail is. During this two and one half decades, by the grace and  power of our Lord Jesus Christ,  St. Philomena won my soul for her Kingdom, one that I have, in turn, instantiated in the subjective structure of Royaume France. This is why St. Philomena is so central to Royaume France and is its Queen. For twenty-five years, I time and again nearly perished in the storms raging against me. For twenty-five years, St. Philomena stood by the power of God as my shield.


The objective purpose behind all this was the glory of God over the forces of darkness through the power he bestowed on St. Philomena. My victory was a manifestation, and instantiation, of her objective glory. The instantiation of the Kingdom of Royaume France, given to her in our prayer of Consecration to St. Philomena, is that which was required of me by Our Lady in return. The public and systematic development of the model had to happen in order to bring the Kingdom "on earth as it is in Heaven."


What was required in this endeavor, itself enduring well over a decade, was the logical connection between the ideal object of St. Philomena's glory and my own subjective experience of this glory experienced through immense, almost fatal, pain and suffering. A bridge of reason had to be crossed from this transitory world to the world of ideal objectivity in order to understand it and fulfill it's objective instantiation in the world. Finding that bridge became the raison d'être of my life. I finally did find it through the eloquent and masterful mind of Edith Stein.  


Edith Stein reconciled her Phenomenology acquired under Husserl with the Medieval Scholasticism of Thomas Aquinas. In doing so, Edith Stein, known by her religious name of St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross, revealed to me the bridge that would lead me to my destination.

Prayer to St. Philomena

Taken from THE LIFE AND MIRACLES OF SAINT PHILOMENA, VIRGIN AND MARTYR


O faithful Virgin and glorious Martyr, who vouchsafest from heaven, where you are, to pour down so great a number of benefits upon the earth, I bless the Lord for the graces he bestowed on you during your life, and above all, at your death; I glorify him and praise him for the honor and the power with which he crowns you today.


Blessed be thou, O holy God! O God, adorable in thy saints! O just God! O powerful God! O God of infinite mercy!


O faithful Virgin and glorious Martyr, whose faith triumphed over all the attacks of the world and of hell, I bless God for your triumphs; I praise him and I give him glory for the victorious strength he communicated to you.


Blessed be thou, O holy God! O God, adorable in thy saints! O just God! O powerful God! O God of infinite mercy!


O faithful Virgin and glorious Martyr, who did prefer to the visible goods of this world, the invisible but measureless treasures of a blessed eternity, I bless God for the firm hope that he put in your heart; I praise him and glorify him for the victory which he caused you to gain over the tempter and over yourself.


Blessed be thou, O holy God! O God, adorable in thy saints! O just God! O powerful God !O God of infinite mercy!


O faithful Virgin and glorious Martyr, the raging waters of tribulation that rolled over you, were unable to extinguish the charity that consumed your soul; I bless God for the constancy he gave you; I praise him and I give him glory for this noble ardor, that made you devour, as it were, so many sufferings.


Blessed be thou, O holy God! O God, adorable in thy saints! O just God! O powerful God! O God of infinite mercy!


O faithful Virgin and glorious Martyr, whose powerful arm fights this day for the church upon earth, I bless God for the choice by which he has honored you: I praise him and I glorify him for the numberless wonders of which he makes you the agent, and of which the Catholic, Apostolic, and Roman Church gathers the fruits.


Blessed be thou, O holy God! O God, adorable in thy saints! O just God! O powerful God of infinite mercy!


O faithful Virgin and glorious Martyr, I rejoice at your glory; I am filled with gladness at seeing the glory you render to God, particularly by the miracles wrought in favor of the poor and simple: I pray the Divine Majesty to make known your name more and more, to show forth your power, and to multiply the number of your devoted servants.


Blessed be thou, O holy God! O God, adorable in thy saints! O just God! O powerful God of infinite mercy!


O faithful Virgin and glorious Martyr, have compassion on me; exercise upon my soul and upon my body the ministry of salvation, of which God has judged you worthy; you know better than I the multitude and variety of my wants; behold me at your feet, full of poverty and hope; I solicit your charity, O great Saint! hear me graciously; bless me; vouchsafe to render agreeable to my God, the humble petition which I present to you (here one may specify the favor they desire to obtain from the saint). Yes, I have the firm hope, that through your merits, through your ignominy, through your death, united to the merits of the death and passion of our Lord Jesus Christ, I shall obtain what I ask of you, and I will say, in the joy of my heart,


Blessed be thou, O holy God! O God, adorable in thy saints! O just God! O powerful God of infinite mercy!


Pater and Ave for the Pope and for the necessities of the church.

Prayer of Consecration to St. Philomena

by Walter Adams for Royaume France

I am eternally grateful to our most august Queen the Virgin Mary who has drawn me over the course of my life through the loving care of St. Thérèse and St. Joan, along the Trail of the Dogmatic Creed of the Roman Catholic Church, toward a Kingdom I was told to seek in the center of Mary’s Immaculate Heart. Here is where St. Philomena, powerful before God and “beloved above all others”(Fr. Paul, 1954, p. 91), sits reigning as my sovereign and the protector of the treasury of graces that God, our Holy Father in Heaven with His Son our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit, has granted to me, a most unworthy man, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the saintly, sisterly care of St. Joan and St. Thérèse. As St. Joan and St. Thérèse established me on this Trail leading to the center of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I, for the first time in my life, have something of great value to give. It is to St. Philomena that I irrevocably give it.


I ask her constant intercession to God and Our Lady for the graces of Faith, Hope, and Love; Humility and Purity; Confidence; Poverty and Simplicity; Patience and Fortitude; Final Perseverance; the Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit; Martyrdom; and all the graces I need to be a saint.
