How can I follow the Dove and Rose devotion to St. Joan of Arc and St. Thérèse of Lisieux?
Everything you see here and in “Le Royaume” is fundamentally driven by this core devotion to Sts. Joan and Thérèse, The Dove and Rose. The Dove and Rose itself is no more than a particular manifestation of Consecration to the Most Holy Virgin Mary according to St. Louis de Montfort. It is through this magnificent devotion and through these relationships that the Blessed Virgin answered the prayers of my re-consecration in her chapel in the Cathedral of St. Louis the King in St. Louis, MO. From there, she led me back home to the Chicago area and to the Church of St. Stanislaus Kostka downtown where her beautiful Icon is established as one of the most astonishing Eucharistic Monstrances in the world. Before the Sacred Host containing the real and substantial Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, the great castle doors of “Le Royaume” opened for me. St. Joan and St. Thérèse were Our Lord and Our Lady’s gift to help me walk through those doors. Maybe they are looking for you as well.
The best way to learn about following The Dove and Rose is to visit my website, named appropriately, The Dove and Rose, which was established for the sole purpose of explaining and helping others discern if they too are being called to follow the Trail of the Dogmatic Creed through the meadows, across the rivers, and over the hills to the Mystical Kingdom of France. I am a poor and insignificant mendicant making my journey. I hope you will join our saintly sisters on the Trail. If I see you, I’ll wave. I might be resting on a rock or washing my feet in a creek. I’m slow, but I’m happy. Most of all, I’m enjoying the company.
I hope you drop by The Dove and Rose. Though my books are promoted on all my sites, I do not typically make overt references to needing to read them. My books support my work; I do not work to promote my books. But when it comes to the Dove and Rose, it might help for you to read them.
