At the October 6 and 7 , 2017 Saint Benedict Center’s conference in Richmond New Hampshire, Charles Coulombe spoke on the subject of “The Reign of Two Hearts: The Kingship of Christ and the Queenship of Mary.” He talked about what a Christian country would look like and what the reign of the two hearts means.
The theme of the 2017 conference was about Fatima. A number of speakers and people came from all around the country to attend this event. This conference is the biggest occasion that the Saint Benedict Center hosts.
Charles Coulombe, a Knight Commander of the Order of St. Sylvester, is an graduate of New Mexico Military Institute. He now is a prolific author of many books. Some of his most famous works include: Puritans Empire, Star Spangled Crown, and The Popes Legion: the Multinational fighting force that Defended the Vatican. Now he is traveling the country giving lectures and inspiring the Catholic and non-Catholic world.
Mr. Coulombe shared with the audience what a Christian country would look like and how to achieve one. He explained that a true Christian country would acknowledge Christ’s Kingship and not deny it. He gave the example of the Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris which was built in reparation to the Sacred Heart for the crimes of the French Revolution. Mr. Coulombe replied to the question regarding a Catholic country coming into existence he said “A Christian state itself is a by product of Christian living, which would require mass conversion which seems unlikely, but occurs from time to time.”
Mr. Coulombe talked about how the laws of the state should be equal to the natural laws. He also mentioned that within the country “without fatherhood of Christ and the Queenship of Mary there is no broherhood” and that “we can rethink the way we think about our country.” Mr. Coulombe said a conservative movement was pushed in our country because of Anti-Communism.
Mr. Coulombe wanted to leave his audience with an idea that the Kingship of Christ is universal and every person should partake in it. Mr. Coulombe ended with “Because the faith is essential for the individual it is essential for the nation.”
