His Heart, O So Tender, So Pierced

One Thursday night in the tiny French Pyreneen village of St Pierre de Soulan when I was praying the Holy Hour, I began to feel a tender quality in my heart.

I heard the continuous cry of a young dog, outside in the snowy cold night.

That cry seemed to go straight into the tenderness in my heart.

I wondered as I prayed, if I was experiencing a tiny sense of what His Sacred Heart feels at each and every pain or tragedy, from every living creature on earth.

That each expression of hurt, penetrates His Heart and He responds to it with His pure and immeasurable love.

And that just as He is Himself hurt by our pains and wrongdoings, He is overjoyed by our acts of kindness and love.

All of this can be seen expressed through the image of His Most Sacred Heart….depicted as human, tender, pierced and bleeding, whilst constantly emanating His Holy Fire of Love.

From Amazon USA:

We have found the books (and film) below deeply helpful to us in understanding Catholic France. The Jonas volumes however are permeated by the reductionist ideology of secular academia. Yet they open out a lost world … Most of these have reviews here at our site. You can also find nearly all of these items in the various sections of our Amazon UK store here. (The beautiful French film of Bernadette is sadly only available at Amazon US).

    The Gentle Traditionalist

     

    ”Roger Buck ... in the spirit of Chesterton and Belloc ... takes on everything—from the reforms of Vatican II to the New Age ... a wonderful book.”— MICHAEL MARTIN

    ”A tale of whimsical fantasy, melancholy realism, and supernatural joy ... Buck’s deftly-reasoned post-modern apologetic for full-blooded Catholicism—a Syllabus of Errors in narrative form, a rousing hymn to ‘meaning, grace, beauty, life’.” — PETER KWASNIEWSKI

    "As brilliant a guide for the perplexed as this age is capable of producing” — CHARLES A. COULOMBE

    ”Buck goes to the heart of the problem paralyzing our broken-hearted world ... moving beyond the spirit of the age to the Spirit who moves all ages.” — JOSEPH PEARCE

    ”In this elegant feast of a book, Roger Buck ... expertly skewers the modern world ... without a drop of malice in his compassionate soul ... to reveal the bright, shining love and truth at the center of the universe—symbolised by the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and incarnate in the Catholic Church.” — CHARLES A. COULOMBE

    ”A great service to the Church ... Buck shows that the New Age is an attempt, however flawed, to escape the materialism of modernity, and that it is Catholicism in its traditional forms that can best reveal the immense reality of the suffering and love for all mankind of Christ’s Sacred Heart.”— JOSEPH SHAW
