The Manuscript

The House of New Bethany: Holy Devotion to St. Mary Magdalene is a noticeably short book, only thirty pages in length. One could say it was a pamphlet. However, it is the distillation of all my work over the years representing the journey with St. Joan and St. Thérèse to Magdalene’s Mystical Kingdom of Catholic and Royal France. The book’s description reads as follows:

This brief book of reflections distills the essence of what I have been writing for over fifteen years. Despite the shortness of the book, the reader might take a lifetime to finish it. Behind every sentence are years of contemplation, Eucharistic adoration, reading, and writing. What remains hidden behind the glimpse of Holy Devotion to St. Mary Magdalene expressed here is a shimmering Kingdom circumscribed by the light of the combined hearts and St. Joan of Arc and St. Thérèse of Lisieux. The Kingdom is a form in the center of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. St. Mary Magdalene embodies this Kingdom and holy devotion to her through the Virgin Mary leads us to the feet of Christ in Bethany, the foot of the Cross, the tomb of the resurrection, and, finally, to Mystical France on the shores of Provence. May the reader find Catholic spiritual nourishment here and life in the Mystical Kingdom of Catholic and Royal France for eternity.

I am posting The House of New Bethany here for your convenience and edification. I pray that you will contemplate the story and join your heart and mind with St. Joan, St. Thérèse, St. Mary Magdalene, and the Mystical Kingdom of France in the Center of Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart.
