For an American Catholic Monarchy and the restoration of Catholic Monarchies around the world.
"American but not Democratic Republican"
"But, true justice is not to be found save in that commonwealth, if we may so call it, whose Founder and Ruler is Jesus Christ - for, no one can deny that this is the weal of the people. This name, with its varied meanings, is perhaps not quite in tune with our language, but this at least is certain: True justice reigns in that state of which Holy Scripture says, 'Glorious things are said of thee, O City of God.' (Ps 86:3)."
CatholicMonarchy.com is the home site of The Counterrevolutionary and Royal Army of America (formerly the "Catholic and Royal Army of America"). The CRAA is a contemplative based initiative dedicated to inspiring souls with a Catholic worldview in order to inculcate a counterrevolutionary spirit that will aid them in persevering in sanctifying grace and, through their consequent influence in the world, affect a restoration of Christendom in social, cultural, and political affairs.
Through conversion, repentance, prayer, and penance under the sisterly and saintly patronage of Ste. Jehanne d'Arc and Ste. Thérèse de Lisieux, theCRAA seeks the reign of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in all hearts and through those hearts, the establishment of a Catholic Monarchy in the United States and the restoration of all Catholic Monarchies around the world, notably, the Kingdom of Catholic France.CRAA associations are intended primarily to be centers ofcontemplative-based actionthrough the combined spirituality and spiritual gifts of Ste. Jehanne d'Arc and Ste. Thérèse de l'Enfant Jésus.
The CRAA is one of several programs linked to my core initiative to bring God's love to the world through the beauty and majesty of Traditional French Catholicism under the co-patronage of Ste. Jehanne d'Arc and Ste. Thérèse de l'Enfant Jésus. Please drop by my home site and central nervous system, Le Royaume, in order to familiarize yourself with my overall efforts and with the opportunities offered to you to join Ste. Jehanne d'Arc and Ste. Thérèse de l'Enfant Jésus on the Trail of the Dogmatic Creed of Roman Catholicism toward the Blessed Virgin Mary's Mystical Kingdom of France.
Despite the ferocity of the name, we seek first and foremost the conversion of souls to Jesus Christ through a repentant, dogmatic confession of Catholic Faith. We then seek to aid souls in persevering and growing in sanctifying grace. The Church is the seed of the Kingdom of God on earth and was institutionalized personally by Jesus in the course of human events for the salvation of souls through the infinite merits of His redemptive incarnation, life, passion, crucifixion, and resurrection. There is no other source of salvation for the human race than Christ and Christ through His own institutional Church. Thus, the free act of conversion is our primary objective and from there the transformation of culture and government in accord with the Will of God as expressed through His Church and through the Natural Law written on the hearts of all men and women, no matter their race, religion, creed, or nationality. Not all will accept freely the Ark of Salvation in the Catholic Church, but all are called to live at peace with their neighbor through the Natural Law. Our aim is to affect peaceful change in the temporal social, cultural, and political order through the free acts of converted people living a life of sanctifying grace.
The CRAA Mission Statement
"The mission of the Counterrevolutionary and Royal Army of America is to aid souls in persevering in sanctifying grace by inspiring in them, using the Traditional French Catholic experience as a guide, a contemplative counterrevolutionary Catholic worldview which will consequentially influence through them the restoration of Christendom in social, cultural, and political affairs.
The CRAA seeks peaceful change in the temporal realm through the free acts of converted people living a life of sanctifying grace."
The CRAA's Political and Cultural Goals:
establishment of a Divine Right Catholic Monarchy in the United States
which is the spiritual sister to a restored French Monarchy, the latter
who alone reigns for all of the world as the “Eldest Daughter of the
American Monarchy would be tied through blood to French nobility and
would therefore receive an abundance of God’s graces through the
latter’s divine predestination as protector and propagator of the Holy
the American and French Monarchies would restore Catholic civilization and allow for freedom of religion, speech, and association, while Catholicism is preeminent in setting cultural and political norms. The Monarchies would stand together as a powerful
counterrevolutionary buttress against the prevailing anarchic,
revolutionary storms of modernism and secular humanism. The Monarchies
would restore the practical experience of private ownership of property,
a renewed spirit of entrepreneurialism and free-enterprise, and lively
local and state democratic self-determination framed in the Natural Law.
Another program at Le Royaume that you will want to investigate which is designed to aid us in growing in sanctifying grace on our journey through the mystical gates of the Catholic Church toward "la France Mystique" (Mystical France) is The Dove and Rose devoted to Ste. Jehanne d'Arc (The Dove) and Ste. Thérèse de l'Enfant Jésus (The Rose). The Dove and Rose devotion hopes to aid souls in growing in sanctifying grace, while the CRAA hopes to aid in persevering in that grace.
Both websites, CatholicMonarchy.com and DoveandRose.com, stem from my core initiative site, JoanandTherese.com, referenced above. All sites are linked to each other as one focused effort to evangelically promote the beauty of Traditional French Catholicism in order to inspire souls to seek, prepare for, persevere in, and grow in sanctifying grace.
The name, Counterrevolutionary and Royal Army of America, is inspired by the Armée Catholique et Royale of the Vendée during the French Revolution. The Catholic and Royal Army defended their land, their King and Queen, and their Catholic Church in a counterrevolutionary uprising against the secular, atheistic république which sought to destroy the Church and all of Christian culture with it. Thus, our name is fierce but reflects no desire to form an army, other than an army of souls devoted to the love of God through Jesus Christ, His Most Holy Mother, and His Church, which is the Kingdom of God on earth.
As the name indicates, the CRAA is counterrevolutionary. The Revolution is the work of Satan to destroy the goodness of God's Divine Order. The Counterrevolution is the effort of the faithful to restore the Divine Order as revealed to us by God through His Son and by His Son through His Church for all ages. The Revolution promotes the rebellious freedom of man to follow his own unbridled passions and which leads only to the slavery of Adam. The Counterrevolution promotes obedience to the goodness and harmony of God's Divine Order which leads to true freedom, the establishment of God's Kingdom "on earth as it is in Heaven," and therefore to the true love of God between people on earth. The world does not need more "Revolution." The world needs Counterrevolution to restore the preeminence of the Will of Jesus Christ and His Church in the hearts of men and women, and through the hearts of men and women, to restore His preeminence in culture, government, and society at large. The CRAA understands the Catholic Monarchy to be the optimal temporal model of governance for protecting and promoting the preeminence of Jesus Christ's authentic influence in the world through His Church, for He is truly, and objectively speaking, The King of Kings.

As for myself, I am a Princeton and Yale educated boy from the High Plains of the great state of Oklahoma. I have worked many years as a corporate executive, executive management consultant, and educator. You can read more about me on the "À propos de S.T. Martin" (About S.T. Martin) page at Le Royaume. My "Nom de Plume", or Pen Name, of S.T. Martin stands for "St. Thérèse Martin." I have used it for many years and enjoy using it still today.
Please look around! The site will continue to grow over time. If you are interested in the CRAA, or any aspect of Le Royaume, you can contact me through my e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for dropping by! God bless you, and may the Most Blessed Virgin Mary with Ste. Jehanne and Ste. Thérèse pray for you always!
