Je suis un membre de la guilde d'auteurs catholique et aussi un éducateur et un laïc catholique. Je suis très dévoué et consacré aux Sainte Jehanne d'Arc et Sainte Thérèse de l'Enfant Jésus. J'habite en Amérique.
I am an insignificant Catholic layman sharing the story of my journey on the Trail of the Dogmatic Creed with St. Joan of Arc and St. Thérèse of Lisieux.
I am not a professional Catholic; I do not make my living by promoting the Faith or my own testimony. I have no ties with any publisher or media agent. I have no Church sponsored ministry. I neither ask for nor accept money. The only financial profit I receive is from the sales of my books found on the Publications page.
This site is a personal footprint. It represents my spiritual journey. My first two books (Journey to Christendom and Seek First the Kingdom) have received Permission to Publish by the Vicar General from the Archdiocese of Chicago with official declarations of ecclesiastical authority that the material is free from doctrinal and moral error (the other books have not yet been submitted - perhaps one day).
I desire many to join me, none to follow me. We follow Ste. Jehanne d'Arc and Ste. Thérèse de Lisieux on the Trail of the Dogmatic Creed of Roman Catholicism.
My intention is for all of my activities to be in union with our Holy Father, the Pope, and the Magisterium of the Church in a counterrevolutionary hermeneutic of continuity with Sacred Tradition. I strive to be in accord with the spirit and letter of Title I, Canons 215 and 216 of the Code of Canon Law.
We honor St. Mary Magdalene as the Foundress of Le Royaume. With her brother Lazarus, St. Mary brought the contemplative spirit of the apostolic age to France. No doubt Our Lord and Our Lady blessed the land that would become the Blessed Virgin's France through St. Mary Magdalene.
We honor St. Philomena as holding a very special place in Le Royaume. She is very powerful with God and was a favorite of St. John Vianney in Ars. The Living Rosary Association is under her patronage and was founded in France by Pauline Jaricot.

Bienvenue au "Royaume béni des Vierge Marie, Ste. Jehanne, et Ste. Thérèse!
"Vérité, Beauté, Bonté"
Welcome!Le Royaume is my initiative to bring God's LOVE to the world through the beauty and majesty of Traditional French Catholicism. Le Royaume seeks the Traditional French Catholic experience with the Renaissance of the Blessed Virgin Mary's Catholic France and isunder the co-patronage of St. Joan of Arc and St. Thérèse of Lisieux.

Small parts of this site, such as the tabs, are in French solely as an honor to Ste. Jehanne d'Arc and Ste. Thérèse de l'Enfant Jésus. My French is not particularly good, but it seems it would be an egregious violation of etiquette to have a site devoted to Traditional French Catholicism with nothing written in French!
As per the Vision and Mission, Le Royaume seeks those who desire personal conversion by walking the Trail of the Dogmatic Creed with St. Joan and St. Thérèse. For more information on participating, visit the "À propos du Royaume" ("About Le Royaume") page.
Le Royaume is about seeking first the Kingdom of God and His saving justice (Matthew 6:33) through the traditional French Catholic experience. Through traditional French Catholicism, we testify to LOVE, for God is LOVE (1 John 4:8). Through traditional French Catholicism, we come to understand that true love is self-sacrifice in union with Jesus Christ for the glory of God (Mark 8: 34-38). Jesus Christ did not die that we might indulge ourselves. He did not die for the equality of all beliefs and lifestyles. He did not die that we might glorify or "affirm" ourselves. Jesus Christ died for the forgiveness of our sins and rose from the dead that we might be reunited with God, truly LOVE God, and KNOW TRUE LOVE ourselves, as GOD IS LOVE. Separated from GOD, we are separated from LOVE. Sin means to be separated from God and results in a spiritual condition where "we know not what we do" (Luke 23:34). We must repent (Matthew 4:17), meaning, we must change our course, in order that we therefore might "know what we do" in LOVING God. Through repentance we seek to change our ways to God's ways (true LOVE), rather than to demand that God change His ways to our ways (self-love). We are able to go from "not knowing what we do" to "knowing what we do" through losing our life in the life, passion, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, Who is the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE (John 14:6).
The objective of Le Royaumeisto experience this repentance towards God's LOVE in Jesus Christ through the framework of Traditional French Catholicism. St. Joan of Arc and St. Thérèse of Lisieux, under the Queenship of the Virgin Mary, are prepared to help you.
More about Le Royaume
What follows on this website will give you an idea of what an interest in Traditional French Catholicism brought to me; however, each of us should rely only on Holy Mother Church and our spiritual director for guidance. My site is for inspiration, not teaching.
Le Royaume does not assume Traditional French Catholicism to be normative for the Church as a whole nor superior to any other focused interest. On the contrary, our interest in French Catholic spirituality leads us to appreciate the richness of cultural expression throughout the universal Church. The more we love Le Royaume de France, the more we come to appreciate the unique roles other cultures play in the Church and what the Church does in uniting us all as a family in the Faith.
Le Royaume's Mission
"The mission of Le Royaume is to unveil the mystical beauty and majesty of the Catholic Church for the salvation of souls, and to make clear that there is no salvation outside of her, by bringing about in individual hearts, and by them in society at large, the reign of the Blessed Virgin Mary's mystical Kingdom of France through a journey in the holy, beautiful combined spirituality of St. Joan of Arc and St. Thérèse of Lisieux. Le Royaume then seeks to inculcate in those hearts the history of Catholic France and the French Monarchy along with their implications for a modern Catholic Monarchy to govern temporal society where Christ in His Church is given preeminent consideration in establishing societal norms. All of this is done in consecration to Our Lady, the Blessed Virgin Mary, for the reign of her Immaculate Heart and that through her heart God's love in Jesus Christ will reign in the world."
The counter-revolutionary nature of Le Royaume
the historically, traditionally established mystical relationship between the Kingdom of France and the
Immaculate Heart of Mary as its model and foundation, Le Royaume seeks to restore the preeminence
of the Roman Catholic Church in the hearts of men and women and through
the renewal of hearts, to further that preeminence in government,
culture, and society at large.
Le Royaume is traditionally and counter-revolutionarily minded while being in union with our Holy Father the Pope in Rome and the Second Vatican Council. (For a detailed explanation of my position regarding Vatican II, the Vatican II Popes and Bishops, and why we must not abandon the Church despite the Modernists heresies and sacrileges at work in her, please take the time to read this link to the Catholic Counter-Reformation of the late Abbé de Nantes. The French CRC is my model for defending the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church of our Fathers in the necessary continuity of Tradition with the Apostles. "Neither schism nor heresy" - from the CRC.) With Vatican II, the Church did not repent of her previous 19 centuries; she affirmed her past and embraced her future. In each council throughout history, continuity with the past was always the foundation and strength of the Church's vision moving forward. Le Royaume aims to be a counter-revolutionary hermeneutic of continuity that strengthens the Church in the modern world as envisioned in Vatican II.
(For a detailed explanation of the grave dangers threatening the Church through misguided, modernist notions of religious freedom, false ecumenism with Protestantism, and heretical indifferentism which proclaims the equality of all the world's religions - all stemming from the Satanic secular doctrines of "Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité," please see the Expérience Française page and the Dix Points du Royaume page.)
How Le Royaume is organized
As described on the Vision and Mission page, Le Royaume is composed of three focused interests: 1) Seek the Kingdom (Vérité) through the Sacraments, True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary, and Eucharistic Adoration; 2) Love the Kingdom (Beauté) through a journey on the Trail of the Dogmatic Creed with Ste. Jehanne d'Arc and Ste. Thérèse de Lisieux; 3) Defend the Kingdom (Bonté) through inculcating a counter-revolutionary spirit in union with the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and the saintly hearts of Jehanne and Thérèse.
