Welcome to the Dove and Rose! Here is an overview and roadmap of what you will find. Below are the major attractions on your journey with St. Joan (The Dove) and St. Thérèse (The Rose).
The Dove and Rost typically releases newsletters to subscribers on Monday, Thursday, and Saturday of each week.
Attraction 1: Begin at the Beginning
The Home page opens the gate to a majestic world through Catholicism. The Dove and Rose is a phenomenological journey with St. Joan and St. Thérèse to the Kingdom of Mystical France in the center of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. It is primarily devotional but also philosophical.
Before you begin, visit the About page to learn more about the Mission and Vision of The Dove and Rose. Recall an encounter with Heaven and allow our saintly sisters to guide you to its meaning!
To improve your understanding of The Dove and Rose methodology, read my essential post, “What is Phenomenology?”
Peruse my book list here. This will give you a high-level overview of my own journey.
The Author’s Story will explain my journey in detail.
About Walter Emerson (Adams) will give you a brief overview of me.
Attraction 2: The Writings
The Dove and Rose has a dynamically expanding set of topics. These will be updated as needed, so watch this page! Currently, you will find the following topics.
Journey to Christendom (Paid subscribers only - previews for free)
The Philosophical Foundations of Le Royaume (Paid subscribers only - previews for free)
Thérèse and Heidegger (free)
Attraction 3: Podcasts
Listen in as I discuss the content and inspiration behind the project. You will hear about the “divine glance” of St. Joan of Arc, the “understanding but not knowing” behind discovering St. Thérèse, and the philosophical influence of St. Edith Stein.
Check out The Dove and Rose podcast here and on Anchor, Spotify, or Apple.
Also, visit Heroic Hearts, a sister podcast with The Dove and Rose. Co-hosted with Amy Chase.
Attraction 4: Notes
Substack offers a Notes feature where authors can develop ideas, scratch out concepts to be developed later, build community, and learn from each other. Join me on Notes for daily “brainstorming”!
I hope you will join me either as a paid or free subscriber. I look forward to sharing with you!
Oh, wait! I almost forgot! There is one other important attraction on The Dove and Rose :-) Your support is most appreciated!
