Announcement! Royaume France is now The Dove and Rose!
St. Joan the Dove - St. Thérèse the Rose
Royaume France is now The Dove and Rose!
In the early years of my descriptive phenomenological writing, I developed the concept of the Dove and Rose to represent St. Joan of Arc and St. Thérèse. When the authorities burned St. Joan at the stake, an English soldier witnessed a white dove flying out of the flames and toward free France. St. Thérèse, of course, is known by her “shower of roses.” It was not hard to image St. Joan and St. Thérèse as The Dove and Rose !
I think the time has come to build on a name that is more accessible and understandable to the general public. Royaume France developed out of higher level categorical intuitions in my own map of meaning. It is a name very dear to my heart. However, my personal map of meaning does not always translate readily to others! I hope that the name, and theme, of The Dove and Rose will be a delight for you and something we all can share!
The content will continue “as is” in a spirit of hermeneutics and growth.
Let’s call The Dove and Rose the more transcendent principle governing Royaume France!
Thank you all for listening! Your support is noticed and appreciated! I look forward to providing future content as The Dove and Rose!

The Dove and Rose Extol the dove and rose Whose lives we imitate To God their glory known That we may call them great We love the dove and rose Whose virtues are ornate Our Joan winged brightly gold Thérèse with petals laced They call, the dove and rose To battles won, though weighed By us who fight for those Who’ll crown us on our day © 2010 by Walter Emerson
