Queen St. Clotilda, the spiritual mother of Christendom and wife of King Clovis, inspires Royal Hearts and is our mother and patroness. Royal Hearts is also under the co-patronage of St. Joan of Arc and St. Thérèse of Lisieux, the co-secondary patronesses of France.
Royal Hearts is a traditional French Catholic inspired initiative dedicated to inspiring souls with a Catholic worldview in order to inculcate a royal French Catholic heart that will aid them in persevering in sanctifying grace and, through their consequent influence in the world, continue the work of building “New Christendom” in the Americas.
As The Dove and Rose devotion to St. Joan of Arc and St. Thérèse of the Child Jesus is a means for uniting ourselves to the Sacred Heart of Jesus in the center of Mary’s Immaculate Heart which is mystically the Kingdom of God, Royal Hearts is the necessary means for the defense and propagation of that same Kingdom.
Royal Hearts is more than a Counterrevolutionary organization devoted to the defense of the Holy Roman Catholic Church, which is the seed of the Kingdom of God on earth. Royal Hearts seeks to go beyond the Counterrevolution to engage directly in battle with the Red Dragon and the two Beasts (Revelation 12-13). To do this each Royal Heart must seek the renaissance in their own hearts and in the world of the Blessed Virgin Mary’s Catholic and Royal France. Our aim is to finish the work of making the Americas a “New Christendom” ruled by the Church and Christ Jesus rather than a vulgar Republic ruled by the corrupted “People” under the influence of the Red Dragon.
Royal Hearts recognizes that nations play various and unique roles in the divine economy of almighty God, and it is to the Kingdom of France (now in exile under “the Republic”) that belongs the supreme title of “Eldest Daughter of the Church.”
Royal Hearts is inspired by the martyrs of the Catholic and Royal Army of the Vendée, “l’Armée Catholique et Royale,” who led the Counterrevolution opposing the blasphemous French Revolution. As with the noble Vendéans, we are devoted foremost to the authentic teachings of the Catholic Church. As with the noble Vendéans, we are the children of the most holy and glorious Virgin Mary through the teachings of St. Louis de Montfort. As with all Royal Hearts, we are driven in an unyielding sense of Christian fidelity and charity by the influence of St. Joan of Arc – “Our Lord first served.”(Saint Joan of Arc quotes, 2018)
Royal Hearts recognizes that each person must first be converted in heart, mind, and soul to Jesus Christ as He is known in the fullness of public revelation in His Roman Catholic Church. The Royal Heart must be consecrated totally and without reserve to the most holy and blessed Virgin Mary. The Royal Heart is strongly encouraged to consecrate him or herself to the patronage of St. Joan of Arc and St. Thérèse of Lisieux, the secondary co-patronesses of France, as a means to enter most deeply and meaningfully into the Immaculate Heart of Mary, the mystical Kingdom of God, where Christ sits enthroned in all of His glory. The Royal Heart must be willing to endure the loss of all things, even his or her own life, for the cause of Jesus Christ our King, the most holy and glorious Virgin Mary our Queen, and the entire Kingdom of God. Our direct engagement with the forces of the Red Dragon and our willingness to suffer martyrdom, though we are undeserving and could only do so by the grace of Our Lord Jesus Christ, are what take us beyond the Counterrevolution.
Royal Hearts recognizes that on the earthly stage, replete with a cacophony of confusing and contradictory philosophies, there are really only two apocalyptic players, Christ and Anti-Christ. Christ is truly man and truly God as the Second Person of the Holy Trinity, the only Savior of the human race, and the One through Whom all things were created. Through time and space, He draws all men and all of creation to Himself in magnificent order, beauty, and glory, to be fulfilled at His Second Coming when He will judge the living and the dead, and His Kingdom will have no end. Anti-Christ is Satan personified, whose spirit roams the world with a legion of fallen angels seeking the ruin of every human soul. He will be the spirit guiding the Anti-Christ of history when that awful moment arrives.
Royal Hearts, along with every individual Royal Heart, knows that with the two apocalyptic players come their temporal forces, Christ’s being that of obedience to the will of the Father, moral and civil order, peace, happiness, beauty, and authentic life-giving culture, and with the Anti-Christ’s being a Revolution of disordered blasphemy and vulgarity against the aforementioned. The Revolution seeks to destroy through any means possible, notably through the vulgar and disordered passions of man, the advancement of Christ’s beauty, order, and peace in time and space. The Counterrevolution is the pro-active response to end the Revolution and to establish the reign of Christ in the hearts of all men and women, and, through their hearts, to establish Christ’s reign of beauty and order in the temporal affairs of mankind.
Royal Hearts recognizes the Revolution as a phenomenon that predates the created order to when Satan with his vulgar hosts rebelled against God. The Revolution was then inculcated like a virus as Original Sin into the human race at the fall of mankind through the temptation of the evil one. The Revolution has shown itself consistently throughout the ages. However, Royal Hearts points to four more modern key manifestations of the Revolution which are driving most of the work of the spirit of Anti-Christ in the world today and which are preparing the way for the Anti-Christ of history:
(1) The Protestant Revolution (we do not refer to it as “Reformation,” for it reformed nothing; it was nothing less than a Revolution against Christ’s Church)
(2) The French Revolution
(3) The Bolshevik Revolution
(4) The “Sixties” hippy Revolution (which includes atheism, secularism, moral and religious relativism, “spiritual but not religious” nonsense, and the New Age)
All of these Revolutions have acted as a flaming ramrod against the great castle walls of the Kingdom of God, the seed on earth of which is the Holy Roman Catholic Church.
Royal Hearts is loyal to the Pope in Rome and the Bishops in union with him – “Our Lord first served.”(Saint Joan of Arc quotes, 2018, previously cited)
Royal Hearts is very traditionally minded.
Royal Hearts sees in today’s Church the prophetic fulfillment of the prophecy of Our Lady of LaSalette regarding the evils to befall the Church – “Lastly, Hell will reign on earth.”(Hertz, 2014). These are the Revolutionaries for the Red Dragon who treacherously call themselves “Catholic” while refusing to obey Christ in His Church. They are the abortionists and homosexual rights advocates. They promote the ordination of women, religious syncretism, moral relativism, and vulgar liturgical practices alongside novel, Masonic and Protestant doctrines; in sum, they are no more than Satan’s Revolutionaries working from the inside to destroy the Church.
Royal Hearts, for the all the reasons listed above, is wholly devoted to the Kingdom of Catholic France, the restoration of the French Catholic Monarchy, and the renaissance of Catholic New France in the Americas.
Royal Hearts, then, is Catholic and Royalist.
