S2E8 - From Joan of Arc to Mary Magdalene and Mystical France
The emerging universals on the Trail of the Dogmatic Creed with St. Joan and St. Thérèse
Season 2 Episode 8
Thus far I have given you a descriptive phenomenology of the journey on the Trail of the Dogmatic Creed with St. Joan of Arc and St. Thérèse of Lisieux. We have arrived at “mystical France” on the shores of Provence with St. Mary Magdalene. My hope is that this journey has given you inspiration to contemplate the meaning this might have in your life. My belief is that in this descriptive, hermeneutical process there is a set of universal principles - those that can be distilled from my perspective. One such principle is that of the Divine Order. We can use the metaphor of standing on a hilltop overlooking a magnificent panorama we have never before seen. Everything is in order, and the gestalt image is transcendent. The journey to mystical France is a search for those universal principles leading to that gestalt image.
I am also the co-host for the Heroic Hearts podcast which is devoted to a spiritual adventure with St. Joan of Arc and St. Thérèse of Lisieux! Come join us on the journey!
