Season 1 Episode 1
Introduction to the Royaume France model which is a phenomenology of the French Royal Hearts of St. Joan of Arc and St. Thérèse of Lisieux. St. Thérèse is my hermeneutic for understanding St. Joan. I interpret Joan through the voice of Thérèse. Through this hermeneutic I received the grace of a “divine glance”, using Thérèsian terms, or an “unreflective certainty”, using Edith Stein’s philosophical term. The divine glance infused in me a life-long devotion to St. Joan of Arc. The Royaume France model tells this story and is the phenomenological expression of that devotion.
Also, join me on my website, RoyaumeFrance.com where you will find a more comprehensive and systematic description of the phenomenological model.
