Beneath the lace and beyond the range of the critical eye of history, we find a heart of an extraordinary individual. For sixty-two years, Louis XIV governed France with scientific expertise and what he called “good sense.” The beauty and grandeur of the longest reign in the history of Europe was to him but the shadow of that higher nobility and true greatness of the inner man whose grace, that of the Saviour himself, was the model for his comportment, statesmanship, and religious life. He built Versailles, modeled after an ancient soul memory, as an archetype of the universal concept of community. — Elizabeth Clare Prophet
