It is time to elevate our devotion to St. Joan of Arc and St. Thérèse of Lisieux to a sanctifying missionary force for Jesus Christ and our most Blessed Mother, the Virgin Mary. I am establishing more structure for The Dove and Rose to accomplish this. I ask all of you to consider supporting this effort. Please join me by:
Becoming a paid subscriber to The Dove and Rose to receive weekly releases of chapters from my books. Paid subscribers can comment and participate in chats using the Substack app.
Sharing your ideas that we might benefit from your experiences, knowledge, and insights.
Introducing this work to priests and bishops who are sympathetic to the cause.
I already have many free writings and podcasts on this site. What began free remains free.
I will create updated content and request your support by becoming a paid subscriber.
I will post chapters of my books that are available on Amazon. You can buy the books there or become a paid subscriber to The Dove and Rose and read a chapter each week. I will also open discussions on Substack, where we can discuss the most recent chapter.
I will challenge you to correlate my postings to the community goals below.
The community description:
This community brings together devotees of St. Joan of Arc and St. Thérèse of Lisieux so we can bring the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in Heaven.
We believe an original and substantive Catholic spirituality exists in the combined hearts of St. Joan and St. Thérèse.
We believe we are called to assist them in their mission for the Church.
With them, we need to break through divisions and unify the Church.
With them, we need to walk into the world, spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ.
With them, we need to understand how to be sanctified in a post-modern, nihilistic world.
Regarding the first bullet point: St. Joan of Arc and St. Thérèse of Lisieux are uniquely powerful saints; however, in their combined spirituality, they are an extraordinary force for the good of the Church.
Regarding the second bullet point: Through an unreflective certainty or general inspiration, the Holy Spirit has called us to assist them.
Regarding the third bullet point: St. Joan and St. Thérèse are armed with spiritual weapons to break down divisions and restore unity in the Church.
Regarding bullet point four: With them, we must walk into the world, refocused on evangelizing for Jesus Christ.
Regarding the fifth bullet point: We need to work together to be sanctified through the sacraments of the Church and a life of prayer in an unprecedented post-modern, nihilistic world.
I have devoted the past fifteen years to St. Joan of Arc and St. Thérèse of Lisieux after a miraculous intervention in my life by St. Joan through the voice and heart of St. Thérèse. Please join me as we prayerfully move forward with their saintly sisterly hearts.
May St. Joan and St. Thérèse pray for you always!
