Raises the standards and banners, stamped with the Sacred Heart,

And proclaims:

The Descent of The King of Love

Here lies The Divine King of the Immortal Ages:

JESUS NAZARENUS REX JUDAEORUM!

Flowers abound, of many kinds!

Strewn by His Angels and human lovers!

The Divine Love’s Mission completed on earth,

Descends, He now, into the limbo of the Just,

To rescue little souls, innocent souls!

Those who were bathed by death before the Bath of Divine Grace!

Opening the golden gates of Paradise!

Dieu Le Roi!  Dieu Le Roi!  Deo gratias!  Dieu Le Roi!

Love In Prison — March 25, 2016

Love In Prison

(Happy Good Friday! Heureux Vendredi Saint!)

O my Jesus, O my Love, where art Thou?

I do not see Thee Whom my soul loves.

Where art Thou, King of Love?

Where art Thou?

In Thy Holy House?

In the Temple of Thy Birth?

In the home of Lazarus?

In Thy Church?  Not even in the tabernacle art Thou hidden!  Thou hast been taken!

O my Love, where art Thou?

O my Love, where art Thou?

In the deepest recesses of my heart?

For Thou sayest, “The kingdom of God is within you.”

Then, O my Jesus!

By Thy grace,

A bridal chamber of flowers and caresses, my room shall be!

Nay, not my room only!

My heart, too!

Let Thy Heaven be in my heart.

That Thou wouldst have a place to lay Thy Head as Thou desirest, O my sweet and Beautiful Jesus!

And yet not even so my Love, not even so!

Thou art Home,

With Thy Heavenly Father, Thy Holy Spirit of Love, and with Thy Angels, along with Thy Saints and Thy Holy Mother,

In the Land of fragrances, flowers, and perfumes, a Land of endless delight!

In earthly exile, I stay, imprisoned in Thy bridal chamber,

Watching and waiting for Thee, O my Spouse, to visit, resting upon Thy Heart, when upon The path of roseless thorns,

Hoping that on the Day of Thy return, Thou wilt call…

And bring me Home, resting in Thee and Thy Heart.

The Top 10 Secrets to Happiness — February 23, 2016
The Child Jesus of the Crucifixion of Pichincha — December 27, 2015

The Child Jesus of the Crucifixion of Pichincha

Christ Child Crucified of Pichincha

Dear Child Jesus of Pichincha, I humbly kneel before Thee, worn and disillusioned by the world and all its empty pleasures and promises. I have left the warmth and joy of Thy house to eat husks with the swine.
I beseech Thee to purify my heart and restore my innocence. I humbly beseech Thy Loving and Gracious Heart to forgive, and even forget, my past and to grant me the grace to begin anew. I beg not only for my restoration, but for that of the world, and above all, for that of our beloved Holy Catholic Church, which is so beleaguered and persecuted.
Through the infinite merits of Thy Holy Childhood, I feel confident that my prayer will be answered.
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be…(from Orbis Catholicus)

O Heart of the Crucified Jesus, I love Thee!

O Heart of the Child Jesus, I love Thee!

O Heart of the Child Jesus Crucified, I love Thee!

Happy Birthday, Jesus! — December 25, 2015

Happy Birthday, Jesus!

Little Word of the Lord

Cantique De Noël

O Divine Love,

Who came down from Heaven

Born as an Infant,

Fresh, holy, spotless, little Lamb!

O Divine Love,

Encircled by God’s creatures,

Bowing their heads before Thy Divine Infancy!

Thy Immaculate Mother and Thy Foster-Father

Adore Thee,

Along with the shepherds,

The Magi,

Bearing gifts!

And the Angels on high,

Singing,

Their voices filling the night sky!

Lastly, the star in the sky,

The one the Magi followed,

Shines brightly,

As Thou cooes and laughs

Cries and sleeps!

O Divine Love,

Thou Savior of men,

Our ways Thou amends,

By Thy grace flowing from Thee!

O Savior of men,

my heart is now Thine,

Thy Heart is now mine!

Canticle of the Angels of the Nativity —

Canticle of the Angels of the Nativity

Hear ye!  Hear ye!  O men of the earth, made in the Image and Likeness of the Divine Creator, God the Father and Maker of Heaven and earth!  Not only has the Father created thee in His Image and Likeness within thy soul, His Divine Son, Jesus Christ, Savior of men and King of the Universe, has taken on the likeness of thy human flesh in every way but sin!  O what a glorious Mystery!

Yes, O God of Divine Love!  What glorious Mysteries Thou shares with the little ones of the earth!  Behold, Thy Son is in the form of a helpless Babe, wrapped in swaddling clothes by the little Virgin, Who by Thy grace, became His Mother!  Then there is St. Joseph, betrothed to Mary the Virgin, in a chaste union, a safeguard and protector of the Christ Child and His Mother.

What joy St. Joseph must have felt when the Queen of the Universe was given to him in marriage!  What honor he must have felt when he became guardian of the newborn King!

See, little animals, beasts of the earth!  They come to the Holy Family and pay homage to the Infant King!

Men of the earth, where art thou?  Hath none but the beasts of the earth come to do Him homage?  Let us go, not to the cities, for they will scoff, but to the pastures, where our Divine Lord will be properly received, with canticles of love and praise!

GLORIA IN EXCELSIS DEO IN ET TERRA PAX HOMINIBUS BONAE VOLUNTATIS!  O dear shepherds of the fields, simple and poor!  I have great news to tell thee!  God, Who is Mercy and Love, hath come meekly, into the night, as an innocent Infant!  Come, come!  Our sweet Savior hath come hither!  Go, dear shepherds!  Go with haste to see the King!

O the little shepherds go in haste!  To the dwelling of the Holy Family!  A cave, with St. Joseph, the Blessed Virgin Mary, and the Christ Child in the center with little lambs, sheep and goats surrounding Them!  Now the shepherds peer and marvel at the Father’s greatest Work of Love: His Divine Son as an Infant.  Now, the shepherds go, singing and glorifying the Holy Infant, the Prince of Peace, the little Child with the iron rod to rule all nations!  Love came down from Heaven and landed on earth through the Immaculata!  How joyous!

O Divine God, Thy Love has entered the earth through the Virgin, given as a gift to man for the forgiveness of sins!  How merciful Thou art!  How merciful Thou art!  What other gift could hath been given to satisfy man’s desire for Love?  No other!  The God-Man will do!  GLORIA IN EXCELSIS DEO IN ET TERRA PAX HOMINIBUS BONAE VOLUNTATIS!

Jésus, tout ce que je veux pour Noël est Toi!

St. Joan of Arc in Battle — December 22, 2015

St. Joan of Arc in Battle

(from JoanofArc.com: http://www.joanofarc.us/index.html)

Joan of Arc in Battle

Joan of Arc Outside of Orleans

Joan of Arc is known in two different senses around the world. She is the saint who heard the voice of God that told her she would lead the French to victory, and she is the young woman who led men across the battlefield with a leadership that few seemed to have matched in the following 550 years since her death.

Joan of Arc in battle and her leadership there have taken on near legendary status. Through the wars and warriors that were involved with Joan of Arc, she has become an icon of the terrible time known as the One Hundred Years War.  When Joan of Arc was in battle, she defied the cautious strategy that was well-known in the leadership of the French. During the siege of Orleans, there was only one attempted move on the castle, which ended horribly. However, when Joan of Arc came along, she attacked and captured the fortresses of Saint Loup and Saint Jean le Blanc. She continued to defy the war council and took fortress after fortress during the siege of Orleans.

Her legendary status as a leader was cemented when she took an arrow to the neck, but returned wounded to lead her troops in the final charge. For her troops, involved with wars and warriors, Joan of Arc was a true leader in battle. With that type of leadership, she was able to get near super-human results from her troops, which led to her victories.

After her victory at Orleans, there were many ideas for where to attack next, and the English assumed she would attempt an attack on Paris or Normandy. Naturally, she did not go the way everyone thought she would and she persuaded Charles VII to grant her co-command of the army to take over Reims. This was an unbelievable proposal because the city was deep in enemy territory and twice as far away as Paris. She would eventually take Reims and everything in between, making her a well-known force and making the English fear Joan of Arc in battle.

In battle, she wore men’s clothing and the armour of a knight when Joan of Arc was in battle. The reason for this was that she wanted to keep from being molested by male troops while camped in the field, thereby preserving her chastity. On top of that, she could command more respect from the men by dressing as one of them because they would be less likely to think of her as a ‘delicate’ woman or sex object as a result.

No matter what she wore, or how she cut her hair, Joan of Arc in battle made the names Joan of Arc and Hundred Years War intertwined. She was brave beyond that of most warriors in her army and she had the respect of all the men who served under her.  In fact, if you summed up Joan of Arc in battle into two words, they would be leadership and bravery. Not bad for a girl barely into her teens.

The Basic Laws of the Bourbon Dynasty — December 21, 2015

The Basic Laws of the Bourbon Dynasty

(from Royaute.com: http://www.royaute.org/page2.html)

They regulate the succession to the Crown of France: customary rules released gradually to solve serious practical situations, they ensure the continuity of the lineage and the state and thereby guarantee civil peace. Not to be written, they have not less force and were always observed.

The succession to the Crown is hereditary from male to male by order of primogeniture;

The Crown is unavailable in France: the reigning king can not change the order of succession, he can not abdicate or disinherit or deterred a Prince of the blood;

– Succession is instant: “The King is dead, long live the King”;

The King of France must be Catholic, born of a Catholic marriage, canonically valid. However, subjects have no obligation to embrace the Catholic faith.

4th Sunday of Advent: Meditation

St. Elizabeth and the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Queen of the Universe, were waiting with joy and anticipation for the Savior Jesus Christ, the King of the Universe!  O how sweet it is indeed “that the Mother of my Lord should come to me” and grant me Her Son, the Divine One, who loves with the greatest love!

Prayer: O my beloved Jesus, my heart awaits Thy coming.  Please prepare my heart for Thee that my heart will now and forever be a place for Thee to rest Thy Head, O dear King of my heart!
